Apparently (don't remember when - I was a naughty child - always breaking something) I broke my nose and ended up with a nasty deviated septum/obstruction. I had surgery on March 31st (8 days ago). Not a pleasant experience. I train in aikikutsu. Dr. says NO CONTACT SPORTS for 10 weeks! Of course there are still things I can do, but I was wondering if anyone has any experience or words of wisdom about recovering from this type of surgery.

Right now I look like I got punched in the face, my nose is numb on the outside and like raw hamburger meat on the inside.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
