Hi Leenaaaa and all,
It's such a surprise...my stiff and swelling on the left nose gradually subsided and small hole in my left nostril started to recover... what did I do lei? I only sleep a lot in the past wkend and take the medicine that M. Huang gave me cos it's just too expensive... must take... hee hee... also bcos it really helps to reduce the swelling and it makes me less painful. At first when I take the medicine, it gets better, don't take the swelling come back. Then when I stay up late, more painful and after I sleep, it gets better... day after day for 3 to 4 day or irritating migraine... suddenly God answer my pray and the swelling go down on it's own, not completely, but day by day getting better...
Dr. Kim asked me to take antibiotics, but I was thinking since it's sometime gd and sometime bad, let's see how it goes first. And yeah, my body is as tough as me!
Just to share, the medicine that helps the swelling is called Danzen. M. Huang also gave me another more expensive pills call Accolate. He said that can soften the tissue, so that I can push my crooked bridge easier. But I read the menu, it's for asthma... Anyway, my GP told me this is help to absorb the water inside, so probably that helped my swelling go down too.
Following Jovin's post, that lady that I mentioned before who did eyes and nose, she also quoted similar phrase fr. Dr. Kim, "sometimes the nose appear to be crooked after removing bandage as it's due to uneven swelling."
Me is on the way fr 3 wk to 4 wk...the middle part is still stiff, but overall, nose tip is softer than before and today was really busy, didn't take M. Huang's expensive medicine, but seems swelling didn't come back... so I guess I'm on the way to recover... finally... let's keep my finger crossed...
Oh... leenaaaa, almost forgot to answer your question. Ha ha ha... my consultation was just 10 min, cos I was not ready and not prepared. Was out for meeting overseas for 1 wk... Anyway, I highlighted to him that the part I hate most is my front, ie the tip which is up turn, bridge is not my main concern, so just a bit augmentation, looks natural will do.
Now after the swelling subside, the tip is actually quite round... but it looks natural. I guess my left nose has more cartilage etc. which still make my nose looks a bit crooked, but overall it's ok.
Sorry for posting the "sometime depress" and "sometime happy" post. Just like what's mentioned by Earthfriendly... no problem of course is gd, but when there's problem, or just suspecting problem, that kind of physically and pyschologically torture is really hard to bear. I was totally no mood in doing anything... be it dress up, do work etc... If my case turns out to be a problem one, say gortex come out etc... what shld I do and what cld I do? Must pay airfare again to fly to Korea and see Dr. Kim or consult another gd PS for rectification. So bad thing could really happen... just need to think thru' before you take the plunge, and pray hard!
