I had nose surgery. This is my story.

Video Notes:

  • I had nose surgery. The results are LIFE CHANGING! I can finally breathe through my nose efficiently. Thinking about it just makes me smile :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
  • No cosmetic changes to the sniffer. I’m still as ugly as I was before :)
  • Doc says I need to not be around sawdust for several weeks. I let my dust collector run (HEPA filter) for several hours to clean the air before getting back into the shop and then put a light mask on and cleaned up really good. Hopefully this, along with running the dust collector and air filter while I’m not in there will keep the air clean enough for me to shoot more non project videos.
  • I saw Rogue One. Totally didn’t expect that ending. GREAT movie!!
  • Have a good one, folks.



  1. Hi Jay, glad to hear your op went well :) One things for sure you ain’t lost your sense of humour,
    describing the hospital bed as a Cart!! Priceless! Best wishes take it easy!

  2. Glad you’re doing well Jay. Get well and can’t wait till your up and running new projects. More popscicles will help….at least you have excuse to have more.lol. Take care

  3. Good to see you made it through with flying colors. Great story, reminds me of the (too many) times I’ve been through surgery. I had to laugh several times in your story. Do what the doc says, you’ll be glad you did. Really laughing, not kidding.

  4. Jay your not a woose(?), my brother is 6′ 185ibs and faints at the sign of a needle. So your not the only one to have aversions towards needles. I’m glad you finally had it done and are on the mend. Take care of your self, I need my weekly stuff around the web.

  5. Loved the story, had a good laugh at some points. My wife asked me what I was laughing at, so I relayed the story of the suppository, she laughed so hard she said “I think I pee’d a little”
    I’d be fine to if that’s how we fix nausea.

  6. Great storytelling, Jay. Glad to hear you had such a good result. Say – have you noticed any difference in the way things taste?

  7. That’s awesome. You’re clearly pretty happy in this video.

    I get your reaction. I remember getting glasses for the first time in grade six and being able to see leaves on trees. I couldn’t believe that this was what everyone saw.

    I got laser eye surgery almost ten years ago. I still wake up at night and get a little giddy because I can see the time on my alarm clock without picking it up and holding it inches from my face. Hopefully in a decade you’ll still feel like you have 4″ dust collectors!

  8. I’m glad your surgery went well and that you are recovering nicely! I too found your story fun to listen to. It’s the good funny memories like those that you’ll always remember! Continue to stay dust free, and look forward to more builds in the near future!!!
