Recovering from Nasal Surgery

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had issues breathing through my left nostril. Turns out I had a severely deviated septum. I had surgery to get it fixed earlier this week and now in recovery mode. The recovery process has been… uncomfortable. Not painful really, just really, really uncomfortable. I’m also weird and absolutely do not want to take the Tylenol 3s. Being Canadian, the whole process from seeing the doctor, then the nasal specialist, then the surgery, was all… free. Blows my mind. I feel very fortunate and grateful to live in such a wonderful country in this day and age. Anyways, things might be a little quiet around here until the end of the month. I am, however, active on Twitter so if you want to see what I’m thinking about in under 120 characters, connect with me over there. Come to think of it, I have been much more active on Twitter in the last few months. It’s a great platform once you get your bearings. Anyways, I am on hiatus over here for the next little while, which I am blaming entirely on my nasal surgery and the need to recover.

    Ouch sounds painful!
    Get well soon and hopefully you’ll be able to breath more easily when you’re fully recovered!

    Random question was it you who recommended revisionist history podcast to me?! If so thanks, listened to the whole lot while building a shelf unit the other week which kept me entertained! If it wasn’t you check it out and I have no idea where the rec came from 🙂

    • Sorry for the incredibly late reply!

      The first 2 weeks the nose was incredibly painful – swelling and general pain from being cut up. 1.5 months later, it’s feeling much better. However, I can still feel a little gingerness in the left nostril if I wiggle it around. Some time I imagine until it is 100% healed up.

      I don’t think it was me that recommended the revisionist podcast – I will definitely check it out!

      Speaking of podcasts, check out “How I Build This” by NPR. Great interviews with entrepreneurs who’ve built huge, successful companies.
