ABC reporter Bridget Rollason's rough surgery recovery She underwent functional rhino septoplasty this week Surgery aims to improve functionality of the nose 

Award-winning ABC journalist Bridget Rollason is struggling after a major operation on her nose.

Ms Rollason, who is the Victorian state political reporter for the national broadcaster, said she had a functional rhino septoplasty to improve her breathing earlier this week.

However, three days after the surgery, she spoke out about her regret as she recovered i with a swollen face and purple cheeks.

In a post to Twitter on Friday, Ms Rollason asked followers for advice post-surgery.

‘Has anyone on here had a functional rhino septoplasty to improve breathing, and did it change your life?’ she asked.

‘Three days post-surgery, and I’m regretting my life choices.’

Aussies responded on Twitter to soothe the television reporter’s concerns by sharing their success stories after going under the knife.

‘Had it done in 2015, a massive sinus cleanout. One of the best things I’ve ever done, health-wise. Recovery was rough though, hang in there,’ one person said.

‘I had one, the first week is rough and my face felt hot but it really helps, felt like I was getting an extra 50 per cent oxygen,’ another wrote.

‘It really did. Hang in there!’ a third added,’

However, not all comments were positive with some sharing that the surgery doesn’t always work.

‘I have and it didn’t work. When I went back to my surgeon a month later and told him it didn’t work he informed me that there was about a 70 per cent success rate,’ one said.

‘Never told me that before the operation. This was 20 years ago.’

Late last year, the ABC jumped to the defence of Rollason, accusing the Australian Financial Review of ‘trivialising her’.

What got the ABC so riled up was an article by Aaron Patrick referring to ‘the ABC’s television reporter Bridget Rollason, who has shot TikTok videos to catchy music of herself going to a gym, eating breakfast and having her makeup applied’.

The ABC said it had issued a complaint to the AFR, describing the reference as ‘irrelevant, incorrect and trivialising’.

The description also came under fire from many on social media, who described it as ‘sexist’.

Seven reporter Jayde Vincent tweeted the AFR could have described the report as an award-winning journalist, ‘but chose sexism and bizarre, inaccurate attempts to smear them instead’.

Following complaints from the ABC, the AFR said the the publication had deleted the descriptions of the pair, but stood by the story as a whole.

‘The claims about the journalists contained in Aaron Patrick’s report have been deleted from the online story,’ AFR editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury said.

‘The claims detracted from what was an otherwise well-written piece,’
