Nose Started Feeling As Though It is Collapsing After Septoplasty?

I had deviated septum surgery with stints 6 days ago, my nose started feeling as though it is collapsing, is it just the swelling going down? I am still stuffy of course, supposed to get stints removed in 2 days.

 This is most likely just a sensation and not a true sign of nasal bridge or dorsal collapse.  If a sufficient amount of the nasal septal cartilage is maintained during the Septoplasty, along the top portion of the septum, the nose will not collapse.
