Just had septoplasty done and after the stents were taken out my breathing was great. 12 hrs later I have to raise my nostril to breathe fully from one of my nostrils. Is this just my nose adjusting or should I contact my doctor?
Yes... it's pretty normal to have that occur. I usually recommend for my patient to use saline nasal sprays to help with clogging. However, It's best to contact your plastic surgeon to ask for his/her advice.
