In the ultimate clumsy move ever, I tripped over my own feet, fell down my front steps and broke my nose. I've already been to an ENT/plastic surgeon and I've got a deviated septum. I'm supposed to wait for everything to heal (6 months) but I'm having incredibly bad sinus headaches and pain. And when I say bad, I mean worse than my worst migraine bad. Nausea inducing pain. I think it's weather related but it's interfering with my ability to focus and do my job. Should I make an appointment with my doctor to discuss or wait it out for the next couple of months? Also, do you experience this kind of pain after rhinoplasty?

Sorry for your accident. I can't say I've ever broken my nose! Hope the sinus goes away, maybe it's just getting used to it and eventually you can breathe better?

Wow I feel your pain, literally. I've broken mine 4xs lol. It will pass. You need time to heal. Also make sure you sit up even when sleeping so you don't mash your face into a pillow and allow your head to drain.

I'm so sorry it's paining you so much. but try the ice packs as much as you can and stay sitting up.
