The actress of Indian heritage had no choice but to go through the procedure.I was absolutely terrified, but he said he’d stay with me through the whole thing. He held my hands and gave me reassurance during the surgery, which really helped me gain back my courage, as Chopra described.
Before the operation, the girl had already accomplished a lot in her career- from representing India at beauty pageants to getting into Bollywood. Unfortunately, an unsuccessful attempt to remove a harmless growth inside her nose put all that she had achieved in danger.I thought a polypectomy was a minor medical operation, but it turned out to be the complete opposite. In an unfortunate turn of events, the surgeon hit my nose bridge and it crumpled in.
