is making me a little nervous, ‘cause it cannot blow out accumulated stuff (i.e.: blood and snot); how disgusting. Anyway that does not truly matter. What matters is that I can breathe in stereo (for a lack of problem words); stereo means both nostrils have equal inhalation and exhalation functionalities. It has been so many decades that I had minimal, limited right nostril breathing, which makes me feel so freakin’ fortunate, to have been able to recover with what many individuals take for granted. Breathing is a major daily function, providing sufficient oxygen to the lungs and the removal of unnecessary impurities, in our bodies. So it’s a hugely big deal to me.
The pictures midway between paragraphs displays the progress, since surgery on April 24, 2014. This is merely an unprofessionally captured view, from my cell phone’s face time-like camera. It serves a purpose that I never would have dreamed possible; it depicts the ugly and the beauty of my face.
And once again … Dr. E J Strasser of Coral Springs FL … if I had a zillion dollars there would have not been a better surgical improvement, as mostly my toddler through adult years did not find ‘med-surg’ to be painless. To me, med-surg has had memories of painfulness, sleepiness, and professional promising to improve my appearance but failing to complete anything. Dr. E J Strasser took only a look, and provided a confidence beyond any medical individual previous – to give me faith in him. And he brought-forth a new meaningfulness, to breathing and coping with my C.O.P.D. (Chronic Occurring Pulmonary Disease).
As old as I am things never truly bothered me, about my looks; cosmetics did a good job, of hiding wrinkles and skin-irritations. And once again, this surgery will require a cosmetic moisturizer with a foundation, in order to hide a little bit of the scarring. Nothing can truly be said for the way I can breathe because there’s no way to hide such a longer overdo problem. Perhaps now I can live those extra decades, minus the nasal problem’s of the past.
