    Septoplasty tomm.

    I'm having Septoplasty tomorrow. I have to get my septum straightened out, I screwed it up pretty bad when I broke my nose last year in a crash on the bike (cant breathe very well through my nose a lot of the time). Anybody else had this procedure done? I'm a bit nervous to go under, but I've had a couple of surgery's before, so I'm sure I'll be fine. Wish me luck! I'll update sometime tomm.

    Been there and done that. It shouldn't be a big problem, but expect some bruising. They don't put you all the way under, but you are definitely not all there...it is a very odd sensation.

    Good luck!

    I'm doing ok, in a decent amount of pain, but it's standable. I had quite the trip in the hospital, my body ended up pretty much flipping out when they couldn't seem to get an IV into me, lol. One of the strangest things I have ever been through, my entire body started sweating profusely, it was nuts. I stopped take my percocet, it was making me sick, so I'm just on extra strength tylonol. Thanks for the well wishes!
