Hi !
I have an issue with my nose im hoping someone can help me with.
I recently took a blow to my nose, it swelled up and i got a black eye, this happend about 2 - 3 weeks ago. The thing that bothers me is i got hit on the head of the nose and i now have a bump (like a boxers nose) where before it was nice and flat. I want to know if my nose can ever go back to normal and look nice and flat like before. I went to see the doctor and he said to go get an x-ray, i asked him if it will ever look normal again and he said the ear nose and throat people can usually straighten a nose when it has been knocked to a side but he said mine is straight it's just a bit bumpy and that's all he said. I said so my nose is going to look disfigured for the rest of my life now ? and he said just get the x-ray done first and we will go from their, when it happend i wnet to the hospital and the nrse said it may have a slight fracture but it's hard to tell until i get an x-ray. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me if anything can be done ? I don't want this big bump sticking out on the end of my nose it makes me look ugly.
If anyone has any info that can help me it will be greatly apreciated.
