i never thought i would say these words, but "i saw a plastic surgeon yesterday". my nose was healing crooked so my appointment was to see what options i had in order for it to be straightened out. the doctor walked in and started asking questions based on the x-rays i had brought. he then started applying pressure to the side that was crooked "that feels a little tender when you push there" he continued pushing harder to the point that tears were in my eyes "that really hurts". he then said, "if you hold tight i think i can pop it back in place". the most excruciating pain (since childbirth) occurred in my head, i thought i was going to throw up. hopefully this will be IT! i have to keep it covered with steri-strips for the next three weeks, but the doctor thinks that it should heal properly with no further appointments/surgery! i had another round of black eyes last night but they are largely gone today.
