Smell After Rhinoplasty?

Since I had my rhinoplasty five months ago, the left side of my nose produces a nasty smell. I know this because when I put my finger in the left side of my nose, my fingers ends up smelling. It only smells on the left side. Why is this and is it normal?

I would see your surgeon as soon as possible to make sure it's not an infection that's causing the smell.  It's not normal.
