Tough question to answer - I give up!  I suggest you contact the surgeon who did your surgery for an examination.

Its difficult to examine the inside of your nose here

This could be very conerning and require treatment or it could be as simple as a stitch.I am a little confused about why you would be asking this question here when the best thing would be to ask your surgeon. It really could be clarified in a minute. Examining inside your nose over the internet is a difficult thing to do with our current technology.

See Your Surgeon if You Have Any Questions After Rhinoplasty, Especially if There are Bones and White Things Sticking Out

Hi Gemma,

Time to see your rhinoplasty surgeon asap.  And by the way, keep your fricking fingers out of your nose on the way to the office.  Hopefully all is well.  If you are unsatisfied after your visit with your surgeon, then contact a rhinoplasty surgeon for a second opinion.  Good luck and be well.
