Patient :I was playing soccer with my friends and got hit by the ball right smack into my nose. I was wearing spectacles. After the impact, I felt dizzy and could not get up for about 2 minutes. When I got home about 3 minutes later, I checked my nose and there was this small red circular swelling ( 0.5-1 cm diameter) in the centre of my nasal bone. My nose was not crooked or bent when looking straight . But when I looked sideways, my nose isn't straight, its crooked and very uneven. I placed an ice pack over my nose for about an hour but its only gone down a bit. I was wondering what kind of nose damage I have suffered and if my nose will get back to its normal shape.
