    Broken nose question

    I should know better than to ask a serious question in the Hampur, but I don't know where else to post it.

    Anyone know what the approx healing time is on a broken nose with a clean break, IOW the sinus cavity is fine, just the bridge has a clean fracture?

    First time, I hd a nice clean break, took about 3 weeks to feel better and "feel" healed. Second time, I went to a Dr after about 5 weeks, as nose was still bothering me. It had pretty much healed, but not cleanly, Dr had to use a hammer and chisel to re-break it and reset it. Healed up about 4-5 weeks after that. This last time, was shattered, had to have surgery and I swear it was a year before it felt OK. Not right or perfect, just OK. All kinds of sinus issues now. I'd get it looked at it by a professional.

    My daughter got hit in the face last night at ball practice. She was playing SS and covered third on a bunt, looked down to make sure she was covering the bag..... looked up and POW!

    She's 14 so I assume she'll heal quicker than one of you old guys. I was just curious and wondering when she might be able to get back out on the field.

    After we got the bleeding under control she said "It's not that bad, I can go back in." lol Kinda like that knight in "Holy Grail" ...... I mere fleshwound!

    Yeah, she'll be at the specialist in 45 minutes.

    Yeah, but didn't know where to get them. Thanks!

    The bad part is, she has a "fielders mask" that she used to wear in her ball bag. It's like a cage that covers just the face. She should have been wearing it, but you know, she's 14 and I'm stoopid. lol The first thing she said on the way to the doc in the box was "I'm never going without my mask again."

    Oh yeah, Doc in the Box last night, xrays, etc. $100 WITH insurance. I have no idea how much this plastic surgeon is gonna cost. Hopefully he'll just put some tape on it and that will be it.

    I broke my nose in two places playing basketball, that sh!t sucks.

    I'd recommend getting surgery on it cause I couldn't breathe properly until I did, plus it looked f'n terrible. After that, the recovery will take approx. two - three long painful weeks. Then you gotta let the additional swelling / black eyes disappear.

    My right eye stayed like this for a solid month:
