Explanation for Pain and Drainage Years After Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty?
Is it possible that almost 2 year post septo/rhinoplasty a strut graft or the upper lateral cartilage can shift into the nostril and cause external pinching to the left nostril and some internal nasal obstruction?
Also could I have brought this on myself if I was carefully pushing the tip of my nose to the right on occasion because the tip of my nose was shifting to the left (the original position prior to the surgery)?
I have alar strut and rim grafts in the nose using septal cartilage. They also did a tongue and groove technique on the tip for the overprojection. I had dorsal hump removal and osteotomies done.
And now almost 2 years later I have neuralgia, pain, the tip is hard and feels wrong, scar tissue on the top left of the osteotomy site, and can barely touch my nose, clear drainage coming from my nose, and my nose hardening and internal mucous membrane swelling due to environmental smells. Why? Will it ever get better?
