Luisa: It’s been a month and 21 days since my surgery. Dr. Nassif reduced the hump on my nose and he fixed the obstruction that I had; it was 80% obstructed and it was actually deviated so I was not a happy camper. I was not able to sleep right I mean I had to be elevated on multiple pillows.Today is, like I said, it’s been a month and 21 days. I’m not feeling so good today, not because of my nose, well it is because of my nose because my son was asleep in my bed and bonked his hand like just flung his hand out and it actually hit me on my face which impacted my nose which made it hurt. It was just a couple seconds of hurt but now it’s sore and I actually think it’s swollen so I’m just hoping that it didn’t move anything that was not supposed to be moved, it didn’t hurt anything that was not supposed to be hurt.
After that I couldn’t sleep I was just really nervous but I am happy with my profile but I know that I’m swollen right now. I’m just hoping that when I have my doctor’s appointment with Dr. Nassif next week I’m hoping that he’ll tell me that in no way, shape, or form that it’s not going to affect my healing. It’s not going to affect my recovery, it didn’t move anything. I’m just hoping it’s just a bonk in the nose and I’m going to be ok and I’m going to move on.
I’m really happy with my results. Dr. Nassif went above and beyond my expectations. I knew his reputation I knew that he would do a good job but I never knew how much more he would go over my expectations. He’s an amazing doctor and I will never regret my decision to have him perform my surgery, my rhinoplasty, and fixing my deviated septum. He’s a great doctor; he’s attentive to my needs in regard to my nose and my recovery. Jade was also really really helpful in just step by step helping me overcome any fears or just any doubts I had.
You know what? I know that it’s only going to get better from now on. Every day I see something different, every day I see something new. Just today is not a very good day because I know my nose is swollen it actually is tender to the touch and it actually feels swollen. Yesterday I know for a fact my swelling had reduced even more, I mean quite a bit that I actually felt pretty normal.
But today I don’t feel normal because I feel as though I’m partially swollen, and it’s tender to the touch, and I just don’t feel good today. I don’t, I just feel a little nervous because of my son bumping into my nose and I’m hoping that it’s going to be ok because having gone through all this to have a setback would be really devastating for me because this was a turning point for me. I’m excited, I’m looking forward to the end result when there will be no change in my nose and the final product of how I’m going to look. I’m just excited.
My family and friends just think I look terrific and I didn’t do it so much for them I did it for myself. It makes me feel good and I’m happy about that. But today to be honest with you is not a good day because of my son bumping into me so I could lie and tell you that is it but it’s not a good day for me. I just hope everything is ok and I can only look forward to Dr. Nassif telling me that it’s all in my head and that I’m fine and just to move on and that’s next week so today is not such a good day for me.
