My Nose has Survived

Hello all, yes I am back from the depths of the Heidelberg Repat Hospitals operating theatre. The operation went fine – I am presuming. I must say I was so so scared as I lay on the bed in the waiting room. Then when they took me into the operating theatre and I was sliding onto the table I just wanted to jump up and leave the building. They said to keep my eyes open as long as I could!!! You are kidding – there was no way I was closing those little buggers until I was totally sound asleep!!!. There is really no pain in my nose and no bruising. Just a bit of swelling and a majorly blocked nose that is really annoying when I want to eat, or talk at the same time as breathe. Last night I thought I was fine and tackled a few things and then jumped in the shower. Guess I wasn’t a good as I thought because I almost passed out in the shower. I keep getting a bit dizzy but I guess that is from having my sinuses cleaned out and now totally blocked. I am thinking I will be bombarded with smells once I am totally unblocked. The Drs. Have said it could take up to a month before I am unblocked – nooooo.

Tomorrow I have the Lifestyle Expo to go to with my jewellery. I am really not to sure how I will handle it!! I guess if I take it easy I should be fine. OK I am now going to have a bit of a snooze and check in again later. Thanks everyone for your comments and phone calls.


  1. Welcome back Davine, it's wonderful that your surgery went so well but take it easy my friend... blacking out in the shower, I sure hope that someone was there with you at the time and that you're going to be alright driving!

    Wishing you a speedy recovery!
