I had a good cry last week. I got my feelings hurt. I went back to the old familiar place of burying my feelings, but somewhere deep down my body retaliated. Finally it was; out with it! and I had a good cry.
The hurt feelings was complicated by an upcoming surgery I had just scheduled. I’m getting a nose job. I agreed to the first date they suggested because I am so desperate to get better (6 months of on and off sinus infection situations) and the surgery was conflicting with gads of beautiful events coming up in my life. After I had a good cry and took a few breaths, I realized I needed to reschedule it.
I’m still pretty nervous about the surgery and mostly the recovery. I guess a blog is a good place to ask: Have you ever had a septoplasty/turbinate surgery? And what was the recovery like? I have heard a WIDE range of responses to post-surgery recovery, and so of course, I am planning for the worst.
I could really care less about the black eyes and swelling. I just want to know about pain and when can I exercise and how is it breathing out of your mouth for a week? And the removal of the packs—is that as terrible as I imagine it?
I want the honest truth here people, don’t sugar coat it.
