Operation

Back on 26th August, I talked about my busted nose, and how it all came to be. After the visit to the doctors, I finally got an appointment for the ENT department a few weeks ago. The consultant told me to tilt my head and she said without even looking properly “Yes, there is quite a large hole there”. I told her that the doctor did not see it, which she said that it was her job and she does this day in, day out, and chuckled. She then got the camera out and showed me the hole and all the scaring inside my nose from my many operations. Her diagnosis was that they would attempt to fix the hole by cutting and roughing up the edges so that it may knit on its own and repair the hole. All the scaring she explained needed to be cut out and made better and she would reposition my septum and with a bit of luck I will be able to breathe properly after it has all healed and the whistling will be gone, however, she did say that there could be a chance that it will not work, and if that is the case I will have a larger operation and they will remove nasal bone and do a more severe version of this along with new nasal tubes (of which I already have one).

Today it all started with a visit to the hospital for my pre-med. MRSI test, ECG, blood pressure, heart and lungs were all tested and details are taken of allergies and medication taken. I am to have a COVID-19 test on Saturday and then M and I have to isolate until I go for my operation next Tuesday. I was surprised by the isolation part, but I am not complaining as it means I can be well-rested before the operation. I have to be in the hospital for 7:30am which is a pain the in the arse as I will have to get a taxi there which will cost a fortune as it is 10 miles away in another county. M does not drive, so I have enlisted the services of my stepfather to collect me when I am able to go home, which should be early evening. They suggested that I should take the week off work, but I have had full reconstructive surgery and gone to work a couple of days later with my face in plaster like a hockey mask and stitches, and I had surgery a year ago on my face to remove skin cancer and was off just the day of the operation, so I will see how I feel.

Fingers crossed it all works.
