Just talked to doc's nurse......next nosebleed I am to soak cotton balls in Afrin and pack my nose with it for 12 hours. If it starts bleeding again after 12 hours, go to ER. He wants to see me Monday if this continues......This sets me back a week......so now it'll be another week before I can bend over and he suggests I sleep in recliner at least a couple nights after last nosebleed......he says this type post op bleeding happens in less than 1% of patients......Thanks for all your support, love and caring!

If you go to the hospital, will they give you a vitamin K shot? I had a bloody nose so bad that they cartorized it and gave me a vitamin k shot.

Good you got to talk to the doctor. Prayers are still coming your way. Maybe God is telling you to slow down a bit to heal... Pease rest and take care of you for a change. We tend to forget to do this. I know I do.

So glad you got to have a chat with your Doctor's nurse and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I know you will do as you're told, won't you?
I slept in my recliner quite a lot a few years ago when I had that painful bursar, so I know what that's like. I'm praying for your complete healing Vicki. God be with you, love Chris

You are in so many prayers. Let the kitties teach you how to chill. We want you to heal.

Boy, you are so right in learning from the kitties....that's all they do is chill, unless someone comes to the door then it is one runs...they all run!

Well, we all know that you are special. Less than 1%. What luck. I'm sorry and I'll continue to remember you in my prayer time.

More positive thoughts from the UK. I don't think that women take too well to sitting back and doing nothing and we think were OK and off we go again. So take care, sit down and cuddle a cat or two and try relaxing

Thanks for the update.
You are staying in my prayers and I hope you heal fast. One more thing. When you remove the packing after the 12 hours (should the bleeding happen again) please take it out very very gently.
I know you are upset about the set back, but if you do not abide by orders your set back may become a lot bigger. Sorry that you belong to the 1%.
HUGS for you
