Brenna: Did you have to sleep with your head elevated the first night? How did you handle having the nose packed and not being able to blow your nose for over a week? (that's what I was reading on pages about nasal surgery).
Well I had to stay in the hospital overnight because of all the complications and the bandages had to be changed every two hours. I didn't sleep at all that night because I don't sleep in the hospital. However, I was so exhausted the next day and had to take pain meds that I slept pretty good. I did sleep a little elevated but honestly, it didn't bother me as much as I thought. The not blowing my nose was hard because I had to wait 3 weeks, but you can blow a very small amount-just very easily because it hurts. Plus you don't really want to either. It's a pain, quite literally, but it's worth it!
