What is getting a septoplasty like?

Asked By: asfkajfkjdslhkjldsg.
I have a severely deviated septum (my doctor said on a scale of 1 through 10, my nose was a 9). I'm only 13 and I am probably getting it done during thanksgiving break. Does it hurt to get blood drawn? I just got a chicken pox shot, a meningitis shot, and the first installment of the HPV shot. Does it hurt worse than those? Is it sore? How about the IV? Are you already drugged up so much it doesn't hurt? or what? Does the anesthesia (sp?) kick in quickly? Does it hurt to get it out? what else will they do pre-surgery for a septoplasty? does it hurt really bad afterwards? i'm sorry that i have so many questions, i'm just really curious. basically just tell me everything you know about surgery and that'd be awesome.

In take painkillers or not?

Asked By: etothej25
I am in a significant amount of pain. First, my back hurts like a SOB, not sure what I did to it, but I can hardly walk. Also, my hand hurts cause I think I have arthritis. And I am sick with a horrible sore throat. It's just awful. Here's the problem. When I was pregnant recently (baby born in Sept) I had a problem where I couldn't walk called SPD. It was so painful. It even hurt to sit/lay down. So I was put on painkillers for my almost entire 3rd trimester. Then after the Csection, I took them and then I broke my finger and had to take some. So I developed a dependancy to them. It was awful. The withdrawal was terrible and I felt like a junkie, which I am not and it was a really bad feeling. So, since I'm in so much pain, worthy of taking a painkiller, should I take some, or would it be opening doors that I don't want to open. If it was only for a few days, would it still be bad?

What heals bruises quickly...?

Asked By: Anonymous
I ride bmx about 4-5 times a week, and I am always whacking my lower legs with the pegs, or on the bars or seat-post. So I have bruising and tenderness on my legs almost every day of the week. I do wear shin pads, but they just prevent cuts, and absorb some of the impact of my crashes. I am wondering if there is any kind of herb, medication, or vitamins I can take to help the healing process of bruising and tenderness in my legs/shins..?? Thanks :)
