Severe Pain and Pressure Around Eye Still 3 Months Post Septoplasty? (photo)

i've experienced severe pain and pressure at back of my nose, usually when crusts come off my septum, since i was headbutted years ago. I saw an ENT who recommended septplasty which i had 3 months ago. first 2 months felt good but i caught a cold and have the same pain / pressure again with brown discharge on the one sidee. Im concerned the septoplasty did not help and maybe i have sinus disease - see photo? Or am i just being impatient and this inflammation i've always had will go with time
