I think mine is broken :D

Don't laugh: A few nights ago, I wanted to hang a wooden ornament on the wall, so I was standing right underneath it to check if it is straight and then, well, errm, it slipped off the nail and hit me on the bridge of my nose.

If is is broken, would it by necessity cause a lot of pain?

Thanks to all the MDs :)
If you broke your nose, there would have been a LOT of blood.

id like to break my nose right off, the bloody thing gives me more grief than pleasure. Sinus is so screwed, need to get rid of that as well, maybe they can relocate my nasal hairs(the ones that help you taste) to my throat.

rugby is awesome, you dont need to be a dutchmon or a jock to enjoy it.

There is a physical release in rugby that guys can get addicted to.

Never broken my nose but it bleeds a **** load! And often!
Sometimes once a day with no real force needed to get it to bleed.
Then it will stop bleeding for 6 months, and then it starts all over again. And it bleeds a lot!
ENT said I have a vain very close to the surface of my skin in my nose and he can quaterize it or something but I would need to go under anaesthetic - Not keen! Never been under before! Or he apparently could put cocain on it to deepen the vain but he fears addiction and therefore doesnt recommend it

Interesting. I wonder how many 'dosages' of cocaine would it take?

You turn around and you see this HUGE fist coming towards you at illegal speeds, then there is the jolt, and the smell of gunpowder, followed by the statement, "WTF!"

Got hit in the face with a hockey ball in matric. Shattered most of the right side of my face from the mandible up... And my nose was broken. Didn't hurt... Really...

That is, until AFTER surgery :(

Anyway, I too did not have an immediate nosebleed, nor any black eye.

Does medical aids pay to have my nose made all nice and straight again ?
Not as far as I'm aware (unless there are plans out there that do). They will tell you it is cosmetic only, and therefore non-essential.

I too am a member of the TTBNC....(3 Times Broken Nose Club)

Hurts like a barstage with snot and trane and the works. My nose is also lekker skwiff and my sunglasses sit funny.
