I'll be leaving here in two hours to go get the stints in my nose removed from my septoplasty last Thursday.
I'm gradually returning to normal, and hopefully once the stints are gone, I'll be up to 90% fairly quickly.
I'll be making a fairly large post about the entire experience of the last week later this weekend, but just one quick tip. If you are ever going to have major surgery, don't read anything from Ayn Rand prior to surgery. Objectivism and pain don't mix very well on a subconscious level.
