I Had a Rhinoplasty 12 Months Ago, Now Have a Constant Drip Inside and Disgusting Stench?

Had a rhinoplasty 12 months ago, ever since operation have had a constant drip down the back of my throat and disgusting breath. Hospital tell me there is nothing wrong, another surgeon tells me yes he can fix it it just needs to be straightened a little more. Do anyone think this is possibly the cause?

There are multiple causes that can produce increased excessive nasal discharge.  When this condition develops following rhinoplasty it may or may not be directly related to the surgery.  An evaluation by a qualified ear, nose and throat doctor is advisable.
