Nose Bone Update

I know I posted about this right before this entry, and I even updated it, but I just wanted to write this to let you know I am doing better, though still recovering. I had my sinuses "scraped," which is an outpatient procedure in which they (in my case) removed a bone from my nose and inserted a balloon to widen one of my nasal passages. They then packed my sinus cavity with something or other.

My doctor told me people would tell me how painful it is and so forth, and to be sure, there is some pain, but it's nowhere near the level of pain I deal with daily from my neck. Also, I honestly felt better the moment I woke-up! Even though I am still recovering, I can honestly say I feel a lot better. I'm not sure if the bone they removed was itself infected or what the deal is, but I am certain that whatever was done, it improved my health!

So I'm writing this to let you know that, should your doctor suggest you have this surgery, GO FOR IT! All told, the worst part is the bleeding and the nausea from the pain medicine. This temporary discomfort is nothing compared to how much better you will feel!
