The worst part of this whole broken nose thing is that the hospital tries to be helpful and give us the name of a Ears, Nose and Throat doctor to help. So when I called this doctor, they told me they were not on our network. So I called our family doctor, who instead of giving me a name, is making me come in. I guess he wants to see the fracture for himself.
So, the hospital doctor gave Son Acetaminophen-Codeine to take by mouth every 6 hrs as needed for four days. That's 32 pills. I am not sure we got that much, but thankfully, Son has a very high tolerance for pain. He only takes one pill after band and one pill around 9:30 pm. Then he fights the sleep. I'm sure right now that sleep is elusive. He was starting to having sinus issues before he broke his nose, and now he can't breathe or put the spray up his nostril to use. Poor thing!
I'll update everyone tomorrow!
