So as many of you know yesterday was my rhinoplasty surgery! I’m going to apologize in advance for any misspelling or grammar issues. I will go back and correct them later. I’m still on some pain meds.
Oddly enough I’m NOT in any pain. On a scale of 1-10 my pain level is 2.
Surgery Check In:
I checked in at 11:30. Got undressed and into scrub clothes.
I remember making small talk with the nurse who took my blood pressure and vitals. She was so sweet she said she would be my guardian angel throughout the whole procedure. She put an IV in my right arm and within 30 minutes I was out. Completely asleep.
I vaguely remember Dr.Coscia coming in. I was in a deep sleep the whole time and I swear I remember dreaming about unicorns, 😀 For people asking I had my rhinoplasty under IV SEDATION NOT general anesthesia! I am so glad I did. My throat felt fine and my body felt completely fine afterwards. I was a little nauseous but I was able to eat without a problem shortly after!
The next thing I knew I was in the recovery room. I felt so out of it like someone punched me in the face. I WAS NOT IN PAIN. I just felt extremely congested. Extremely congested. Like a bad sinus headache. I cannot breath out of my nose which is wierd and I have to sleep sitting upright again it’s wierd. Not to mention highly unfortable. I’ve only had to take one Narco so far.
I have some bruising but not as bad as I though. Today I am a lot more swollen and brusied than I was yesterday.
After about two hours in the recovery room the nurse wheeled me out and me to David’s car.
Now looking back on yesterday it all feel like such a blur.
I was absolutely terrified yesterday. I remember when I had to say goodbye to David to get dressed. I broke down in tears in the dressing room. I was so nervous. The nurse was sweet and helped calm my nerves and once the IV kicked in it was all rainbows and unicorns.
I’m so happy everything went well with my surgery and there were no complications.
I feel beyond blessed that I had the opportunity to change something about myself that made me feel insecure.
Although right now I’m not looking so hot in fact I look like a hot mess express that’s okay. I can already tell just by looking at the cast that my nose is smaller which excites me!!!!
I cannot wait to see my nose without the cast!
I also cannot thank those of you qh have left me nice comments, emails, and snapchats! It means the world too me!
I will try to update post op day 2 later tonight!
