As I said, I was a little kid at the time... probably 8 or 9, and I too, when hearing that they were going to cauterize my nose, had visions of the doctor with a blow torch. I really tried to be brave about the whole affair, but I think I probably wet my pants walking into the doctor's office. You can NOT imagine the relief I felt when he told me what he was going to do. He probably saw me standing there shaking like a leaf in stark terror!
