Perhaps, if it's causing psychological issues - a friend of a friend was offered a boob job on that basis.

Yes I think you would be able to get something done. May not be a perfect result but could improve things - what you've got there is an injury that you haven't recovered from and that needs medical attention. If he'd burnt you, you would expect plastic surgery on scars wouldn't you? Go see your GP and ask for a referral.

think ive just been putting it to back of mind and dening it ever happened tbh.going to gp would mean id have to talk about it. loads of DV threads on here made me think.... why should i have a reminder of what he did , i divorced the twunt years ago.grin

If yoru nose is causing sleep issues I odn't think it matters how it got that way - they will almost definitely sort it for you.

"It's affecting my sleep" seems to be a very powerful phrase. You don't need to talk about what happened, just say it has been broken in the past and is giving you trouble.

Yes. My mum got her nose reset (she broke it falling on ice) over 10 years after the fact as it was causing her sinus problems. Breathing problems would be the same I should imagine.
