It's Been 36 Days Now Since my Rhinoplasty, I Had Osteotomies Done and Rasping. I Still Have Wheezing and Dryness?

I have some traces of clear fluid with bad odor from time to time and traces of dots of fresh blood but not always. I ran the other day and the breathing from my nose felt a little heavy. After the surgery my left eye lid felt week and was teary, but now it's much better but it still tears up a little and cause slight blurring of my left eye, knowing that the clear fluid comes also from the left nostril. I had the surgery done by Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, is he well known, because he says it normal.

Symptoms after nasal surgery

36 days after rhinoplasty you still have swelling. Inflammation of the tear duct is common and may cause tearing and nasal discharge.

I would give it sometime and follow up closely with your doctor. It sounds like its part of the course and things should resolve with time.
