Scar tissue drainage
Shepherd777 posted:
When I was younger I was in a rollover accident and my entire face was crushed and ripped off, while I was recovering I had what I assumed was scar tissue drainage coming out of my nose, I was sent home with a catherer type device to suck this stuff out, it was dark red in color and very rubbery and pretty strong and it would literally come out in one very long string about a yard long or so, I could of probably filled a 32 ounce cup with the stuff it drained like that non stop for weeks anyway I never found out what this called exactly, if someone knows that would be great. I shouldn't of said drained rather it stuck in my nose until I pulled it out. It had the consistency of one of the stick hand things and was just as hard to break.
