Hello, my name is Dante. I'm an amateur football player from Croatia. At one training session, my team player broke my nose during one collision. After the medical check doctor advised that I should go to surgery and perform septoplasty because I had problems with breathing. I did it and almost recovered but the thing is that one more surgery is waiting for me - rhinoplasty. To perform it I need to wait for 6 months and in that period I need to avoid any possible new impact on my nose.
As I play for a small local club, my club can't provide/buy me a protective mask. There is one medical company (https://www.ottobock.hr/) in my City that can create a mask based on my face so that my nose can be fully protected. That's the only way so that I can continue playing football, otherwise, I will need to wait 6 months for the surgery and then xy months to fully recover from it.
Ottobock couldn't provide me with the exact cost of mask creation as it depends on hours of works but the price should be around 150-200€ (the minimum campaign is 250€).
Protective mask should look like this:
