I saw the doctor yesterday, and he used that thing from Total Recall to suction about 90 pounds of extremely disgusting stuff out of my head. (Please note that certain aspects of these reports may be exaggerated for various reasons, mostly because I find them amusing.)
He told me that I have to continue Operation Do Nothing At All, I Mean It Nothing At All And I Am Not Even Joking About This for another week, at which time he'll take the splints off my septum and probably clear me for driving and other normal activities, which makes me even happier than my impending return to Guinness consumption.
My sinuses look good, and most of the discomfort that was lingering has gone away, so I'm finally off all the pain meds and things that were making me feel stupid and disoriented and, well, like an idiot on drugs. My strongest painkiller now is extra strength Tylenol.
I still get tired easily, and I'm still easily irritated and irrationally annoyed by random things, so staying off the internets is probably a good idea for the next few days. My doctor says that this is also entirely normal and part of the recovery process, which is quite comforting and makes me feel less looney.
