nysexy saidbtw...what happeend to the other guy??
Nothing, saddly not even a yellow card. It wasn't on purpose though, we didn't expect them to kick near our... so they caught up to right as I got the ball and nailed me as I went in to tackle since I didn't have time to kick it out or back.
kcdoc89 saidDepends on the severity of the cosmetic deformity once the edema has subsided. Just because the nasal bones are fractured on xray or CT scan doesn't mean the nose has to be repaired. I leave it up to the patient once the acute swelling has improved (in 4-5 days) and he can tell what his nose is going to look like. A closed nasal reduction should be performed within 2 weeks of the trauma (if the patient decides to proceed) since the nasal bones can become scarred into position and quite difficult to move. If a deviated septum occurs because of the trauma (which is very common) and the airway becomes obstructed, a septoplasty can be performed in a delayed fashion at the patient's convience.
Well all or most of the swelling has gone down, and my nose looks 'normal' minus that since it was broken to the point of being at a 90 degree angle on my face, according to my mates and coach, it's a bit sunken down in giving a curve to the bridge of my nose as well as knocked a tad to the side to the effect that I cannot wear glasses properly. In addition, breathing is not taxed completely, but my sinuses are acting up rather nastily, it feels like it's all draining in an odd way. I'm afraid it might heal in place a bit, since I've had bones heal out of place to the degree of needing to be re-broken and then set in just one night. Oh and no I didn't get any blackness to my eyes and the purple colouring of my nose went away after a day or two along with the swelling.
I am going to see an ENT, thankfully I do have relatively good insurance coverage, but it's going to eat my spring break--oh well.
Thanks for the advice guys!
