I have a deviated septum. Not really noticeable though. Didn’t really realize it until I got my septum pierced and the tattoo artist told me. I noticed now of course but it doesn’t bother me.

Lol always good when you let a tattoo artist diagnose you.

I had mine fixed in September. The first couple days really sucked, I'll be honest. After that tho it wasn't awful. Sore and uncomfortable. I was back to work in about two weeks. It was totally worth it for me. Mine was really bad.

My husband is having it in January and he does not want to take more than 3 days off. He's surgery is on a thursday so he plans on taking Wed off for pre op and Thursday for the surgery then Friday and then he will have sat and sun and he wants to go back to work Monday.

My mom also has one too. Hers is more noticeable but when I was little she told me that she “broke her nose.” Lol I brought it up in a convo and she laughed and told me that she was just playing that day, and it was because she had a cleft palate? Idk. But now that you brought up the surgery it does make your nose look alot better (Googled it) might be interested in it myself.

I'm pretty sure the doctor will say at least a week. That's when the splints comes out. After that, as long as there's no probs it's up to him and his comfort level.

When I was reading about it, I did read about the splints and told him and he said im still going to work like that. Lol he's very stubborn. Do you think he'd be ok going to work with the splints still in his nose?
