Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Well I wonder I can't see it but maybe what you have is a bit of packing there I would still leave it alone except for what the doctor specifically told you to do. Maybe if you could take a picture of it and send it to the Doctor he might take a look for you to decide if you need sooner.

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

I'll certainly give it a go but the referal process over here takes so long unless I was bleeding or something I think I'll be told to wait!
Youtube and places like this have lots of info pre surgery and one day post op but no in depth info for me to calm my nerves...ok I'm exagerating I'm sat under a blanket with a cup of tea and my cat with my husband in the kitchen cooking fajitas!!!
Choir girl you've been really kind to me darlin thanks

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

I phoned the hospital today and spoke to an ent doctor, he agreed it doesn't sound right the left being blocked so has booked me in to see him on Wednesday 1st. That's set my mind at rest

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Yay!!! So glad you don't have to wait a month to find out what's going on. Knowing is always better than wondering. I hope it's an easy fix. Let us know what you find out.

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Sjb - I've added a picture to my profile of my left nostril.....make sure you ate a while ago before you look at it cos I don't want you throwing up! heehee!
It doesn't look like it does in the mirror on the camera! Looking at it in the picture it doesn't look like what's blocking it...think I'm being neurotic!

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Hi I don't see the picture you are talking about perhaps it was accidently left out.

Click on her name, then "View Public Profile", "Statistics" and "Albums". If you click on the picture a couple of times, it blows up into a really big picture.

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Hi Well I can see that part of the nose inside looks red and irritated. I would still not pick at it in case the white thing is something the doctor placed. Also I can see that the left nostril externally is white, in my opinion this should be pink. I suppose the blood supply might be interupted a bit and I would want to see my professional faster too. I suppose I would send the picture to the doctor if possible and explain at least 4 or more concerns.

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

I've done some strange things in my time but posting a picture of the inside of my manky nose is a first! Heehee! Had a friend visit tonight, the guys at work clubbed together and bought me a boquet of flowers and two new fish for my marine tank. What a lucky girl I am! Mum and dad are coming over tomorrow to 'baby sit' me as my husbaand is back at work so that will be lovely! 37 years old and being baby sat...mum has made chicken pies too yum! Feeling much more cheery.....thanks for your support girls...YOU ROCK

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Hi I had surgery done twice and had my packing removed the next day. The white looks like a string maybe from the packing? I ended up pulling out a stitch which are black and the surgeon wasn't too happy. I ended up needing another surgery I hope the steaming helps I was allowed to take any stuff out what I could see and was allowed to only gently blow with two nostrils open not one at a time! It's very hard not to touch. I also had numbness in my nose for about 6 months and it cleared up. I'm so relieved to have surgery and never get sinus infections anymore. Best wishes with your Dr appt.

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Well that was an experience! I saw an ENT specialist on Wednesday who proceed to poke rather a long scope up my schnoz! He anesthetized it first which helped somewhat but tasted awful dribbling down the back of my throat! He wore a head torch and gently inserted the camera up my nose! The right side where the polyps were removed was clear, the left side however is very swollen hence the serious lack of air flow! I have been advised to continue to use the sprays and have to return on the 21st December. If it's settled down all will be well however if the swelling is also scar tissue as he suspects then he will anesthetize again and remove some of it! Argghhh! I didn't ask what method he would use at that point as my eyes were watering due to the minor procedure that had just taken place and the thought of being awake and having my trunk played with! So fingers crossed now that it is just swelling and that it goes down.

Oooo I have discovered that using a magnification mirror and an iphone 4 torch application works a treat in seeing up your nose! I can now clearly see the 4 stitches (that will be there for up to 6 week by the way before they dissolve!) and the swelling!

What a bizarre way to pass the time of day!

Happy Days One and All!

Pepper

Re: Nasal sutures want to pick it!

Hi did he say anything about the skin's blood circulation with the white part of the left nostril outside?

It's normal now hun, possibly due to me picking it an messing with it! Which my dad has always referred to as packing your trunk!

I was supposed to be going out today for the first time but it snowed and we're suck! Bloomin typical!
