Had surgery to fix my deviated septum, reduce the size of my uvula and soft palate, and remove my tonsils. Took a few hours, slept overnight at the hospital, and back home now. I get the splints(?) removed at the end of this week. So far, not a lot of pain, but feels like a horrible sore throat. Nose is running often, I have to keep replacing the gauze taped below it(looks like a gauze moustache). Pretty much the only real annoyance right now is the difficulty eating with a blocked nose and the bubbly… stuff… or whatever that keeps coming out of my nose. Thankfully not much blood.

Hoping to get through this quickly, surgeon thinks I’ll be good in about 2-3 weeks. Anyone else in their 40’s do this? I hear it takes longer for us.
