Surgery 6 weeks ago. Worse than the cosmetic issues is that I cannot breathe well. Bones settled off center towards the left. Tip overcorrected towards the left. Since the day I came out of surgery I can't breathe out of my left nostril. My right side is better but not like before, I didn't have any breathing issues before. I didn't have any cartilage grafts put anywhere. Doctor told me my turbinates are swolIen but I don't buy it. Cant go a year not breathing. Fixable sooner than 1yr?
