I'm a 20 year old male that just went for open septorhinoplasty with turbinate reduction about a week ago. My nose still feels very stuffy and blocked right now. Is this very normal? When can I really at least breathe again from my nose? My nose looks straighter now I'm happy about that but still hurts very much when touching it. I was told that the plastic splint inside my nostrils will only be removed next week. Will this open up my airways?
