Swelling went away in a week.
Left side was crushed in. Stupid doctor thought it was 'bent', pushed the right side a little, put a splint over it and said to let it heal. Five weeks later my nose looked the same; Crushed on the left side.
Fixing was a matter of re-breaking, ie, push from the inside to correct after it had been allowed five weeks for the cartilage to fuse crushed in.
Needless to say, I had very little respect for the doctor due to his incompetence.
Noses don't shift, they crush.
Think of a car that gets its fender dented in an accident. Big crush on the left fender. Sure, by comparison the right fender now sticks out further, but you don't fix the left fender by pushing in on the right fender. You MUST restore the left fender to it's position before the accident.
