  • Got my nose fixed....So? Read on....

    Ok...for my entire life, I had difficult inhaling through my nose. But, during fire operations and wearing a SCBA, it never seemed to be a problem. (I dont usually suck down bottles)

    So, I finally asked my personal Doctor about fixing this. He referred me to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. After two visits, the Surgeon cauterized the interior of my nose. A simple outpatient visit that took less than 45 minutes.

    After less than a week, I can breath so much easier. I havent tried this out with the SCBA yet, but it should work well.

    I am going to take some ribbing for this, but need to share because I wish someone would have told me about this long ago. It made a major difference and for someone who uses a SCBA for work. (all of us)

        No one knows about that area to test new threads. I just found it the other day. If the procedure improves your sense of smell, you may at times (hot day DOA's, etc) wish you had kept your nose in its previous condition

          I have to say Bou, when I read your title, I thought.... you have got to be kidding me that he had a nip and tuck and then is going to share this. Is he not vain enough? Now I am just playing Bou. : )

            Red- If I wasnt here, who would you follow around these threads? You are my new Mini-Me.

            Anyways, an added bonus to being able to breathe better through your nose is that it is easier to pleasure your girlfriend. If you need help figuring out what I am talking about, PM me.

                  ROTFLMO!!! You are so full of $hit. I never read your threads and you know it, but when you post a playboy thread and then a nip and tuck, I had to say something!

                  It is so hard not to bust your chops. Glad to hear your smelling better. Maybe all you needed was a shower. haha.

                    All kidding aside ...

                    Thanks, Brett, as a long-time asthma sufferer, I found your thread informative.

                    It's been something I've wondered about over the past few years, whether or not being stuffed up in the morning has something to do with my asthma.

                    Perhaps something to look into.

                    As to the added bonus, I'm wondering why Melissa thinks Bou is full of ****? Seems like a logical result to me

                    Thanks for sharing your experience with the surgery. Just out of curiosity, did you also have a problem with snoring? If so, did the surgery help that as well? My dad had surgery to stop his snoring.

                        So Respect...you snore loud then?

                        I used to work with a guy who would snore all the time. I tried to get to bed before him but that wouldn't always work. I would take a bunch of toilet paper rolls from the store room and have them next to my bed. When he would snore I would fire one off at him to wake him up. Everyone thought it was funny that in the morning there would be all these TP rolls all over the floor, like the store room blew up or something.

                        All that time, I just could have just shoved a hot poker up his nose! Thanks Bou for the info!
