Just updating, in case anyone is interested
I got my splint off today! It is pretty much exactly what I wanted. The bridge is streamlined and symmetrical, instead of curving to the right like it used to. And I am SO GLAD he didn't touch my tip because it looks perfect the way it is. They said I was still a little swollen, but honestly I don't think I look that swollen, especially when compared to a lot of pics I've seen of other people 8 days post op. I'd still like it to slim down a little more so I think it looks as it should look right now.
BUUUUT. There is a little bump on the side of the bridge where one of the sutures is, it didn't feel like a hard bump, though, and the nurse said it was liquid that it will go down soon. I asked what would be done about it if it didn't go down, and she said that that's not going to happen and that I shouldnt worry. She also told me to gently press my finger on the bridge to prevent the liquid from developing into a bump on the bridge (or something to that effect, I'm paraphrasing). They want me to come in next week to make sure it's gone. I only got the splint off a few hours ago and already it has gone down a lot, but now I'm scared because I *do* see and feel a hint of a bump. I'm also scared because last time they told me to press down on it, I developed a little air bubble under the bridge.
ugh. i love the way it looks but im paranoid that its not going to stay that way
