RE: The "Henry Waxman" look - an issue with nasal pillows?
I was reading another site where a member said that after 6 years on pillows they went for nostril reduction surgery. Apparently they cut open your nose, and pull the skin together and restitch it. They said it was a very difficult and painful surgery with a long recovery period, and that because it was not medically necessary as they made a larger pillow and different masks that their insurance wouldn't cover it and they had to pay it out of pocket! Dielaughing

LOLOLOL just joking totally a lark. I have read many people say that even after 5 years on pillows they notice no difference and that they are fine. So I think we are all going to be ok, we shall not succumb to piggly wiggly nose.

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.
