Breathing Problem Due to Internal Swelling or Scarring?
It's been three weeks since my primary open rhinoplasty, and I am still unable to breathe through the left side of my nose, which feels very congested. I can however breathe fine through my right side. The nurse told me that this was due to internal swelling on the left side. I'd like to know how long it will take for the internal swelling to go down? I am concerned that this may not be due to internal swelling, but rather scar formation under the nose.
