I had a rhinoplasty 3,5 weeks ago and my nose is still very swallen and sore. For the first 2 weeks the pain was so strong that I was prescribed an antibiotic treatment. I've been taking them for 8 days, but the pain is still there. I haven't got the sense of smell back yet. Why is my nose sore?

Pain after Rhinoplasty
It is unusual to have significant pain 3 1/2 weeks after rhinoplasty surgery. You may have a low pain threshold, but you should be examined by your surgeon.
Having pain after a rhinoplasty 3.5 weeks after surgery is not common. Get evaluated by your surgeon to see what is going on.
Pain is Unusual Following Rhinoplasty
It is very unusual to have significant pain after rhinoplasty, especially 3 1/2 weeks later. You should be examined by your rhinoplasty surgeon. Antibiotic treatment is for infection, not pain.
Good luck and be well.
