    Few years back, I was in a fight, and basically I got punched on the nose and what you see in the picture happened ...

    I didn't care back then and I though it will change the older I got - it didn't. Would NHS cover fixing it or what would you advice.

    I broke my nose in year 5 in a playground accident. My nose is wonky. It isn't harming my health or psychological health, so I would not think of getting th NHS to correct it. Is it harming your health or psychological health?

    Hey, I'm in no way looking for free nose job ... I heard people say they had it fixed on NHS ... not nose job just correcting the bone.

    I don't have an example to cite, but I would have thought that you might qualify for free help if you told your doctor something along the lines of "the current state of my nose is causing me a great amount of stress and has diminished my self-esteem completely. I feel that a nose-correction operation is necessary in order to restore my self-confidence".

    The NHS is short on funds as it is though, so only look into it if it really is causing you problems.

    Someone in TSR who isn't a total ass. I am well aware what the NHS has to offer ... I like my long nose ... it just bent and something to put it in place shouldn't cost much

    I was merely trying to help, although now I wish I hadn't.

    I am so sorry, I get the rare comment of ... "Why your nose so bent" ... and then the worst - which are hurtful. I lived with it, I am in university now I want a better start (uni nearly ending ).
