David already had a nose operation to straighten out the septum (the inner wall between the two nostrils) in March 2000. As a result of the fall on his face in November 2014, his nose was no longer functioning properly, with some difficulties breathing and regular sinus headaches. So, after various checks, he went into hospital and had everything straightened out again. The sinus area was also opened up. The recovery phase took longer than we all anticipated, but the operation appears to have been a full success. Arthur looked after David when he got home, and Josh the hospital cat was very friendly!
