Up the Nose and Around the Eyes
Well, today was my post op visit for my sinus surgery. Everything is going along nicely although it wasn't a particularly pleasant visit having sharp things stuck up your nose. Dr. Palmer removed some of the spacers and sponges, cleaned out some nasty gunk with a special vacuum cleaner and invited me back for another visit next week. I can go back to doing my eye exercises and also I can start the auditory exercises from Brain Fitness (more on this in another post). I can also go swimming.
I can breathe a bit better but I am still clogged up. No change in the sense of smell. Dr. Palmer said to make an appointment over at the Penn Taste and Smell Clinic to follow up in a month when the sinuses are fully open.
However, I am noticing periodically that I am seeing some things in 3D. I am getting this fleeting sense of depth between objects. Maybe my brain and eyes just needed a bit more air to get things going.
