I Had an Open Rhinoplasty 5 Months Ago Have a Blocked Feeling in the Top of my Nasal Passage. Why is This?

On the other side the blocked feeling is at the base of the passage. When i pull my cheeks the passages open. Will this clear up with time? Also the base of the nose where the scar is from the open procedure feels tight when i role my lip over. This has started to improve with time sometimes i feel the pull and other times not. Does this mean that the area is healing and will it disappear with time please.

 You should go see your surgeon to address your concerns, without an exam its hard to say what it can be. You are still swollen and its takes 6-12 months for it to completely subside.
