About a year ago today I was at the tail end of a 3 week recovery from having septoplasty and a tonsillectomy.
Such a painful, painful 3 weeks of my life. And claustrophobic too. I couldn't even eat to comfort myself because my tongue was too swollen to move and my throat was too sensitive.
That being said. I am thankful it is over and done with and I have had a full year of awesome breathing and swallowing! Before my surgery I could only every breath out of one side of my nose at a time, if that. Now, even when I'm sick, I can breathe through both nostrils.
It may have been painful, but it was so worth it. I sleep so much better now. Allergy season isn't as killer. Colds don't rock my world nearly as much as they used to.
Thank you modern medicine!!!
