I had a septoplasty and turbinante reduction 4 weeks ago....because I could not push any air through the left side when holding my right side closed....I still have very bad congestion ...and I am told it may take 3 months? When I take a deep breath thru my nose they collapse inward and when wear breathe rite strips it stops the congestion...I think I might have a nasal valve collapse...could that be possible ...
Nasal Valve Collapse
Its a little early to say whether you have nasal valve collapse. However, you do have a positive Cottle sign, this may be due to swelling from your surgery. Question is did you have a positive Cottle sign before the surgery. Give yourself 6 to 8 weeks or so and ask your surgeon.

It is possible that your nose sucks together at this stage. As healing progresses it should resolve. Relax it is still very early
