Pain is minimal to be honest it's just uncomfortable like my nose is blocked and full of huge boogers (dried blood) and the tightness/swelling in the rest of my face. I have a mild headache but that's probably the worst of it. I can't feel too sorry for myself, it's all self inflicted!
Sleeping wasn't too good I put the gauze back under my nose as it was oozing a fair bit and figured it wold act as a humidifier of sorts. At about 3 am I got up and did some external cleaning with saline and grabbed my peas which I propped against my checks on my pillow. I was able to breath through my nose at that point so left off the gauze for a bit and was finally able to sleep for a few hours. The surgery ended up being open and I have internal splints in addition to my cast which will be taken out in 9 days so I'm surprised I can breathe at all.
The swelling and bruising doesn't look too bad in the frontal photo but you can really tell how puffy I have become from the profile shot, I look like I've gained 20 kilos!!!
