Had septoplasty and turbinate reduction ten days ago. It's healing nicely. But since dried mucus came out earlier, feels cold, runny and tingly? Like it's seeping but its not seeping. Is this normal? Also, now I can, am I allowed to breath through nose? It expands the outer rims and makes whistling sounds but doesn't hurt? Also bridge of nose aches is this normal?? And what is a turbinate reduction even?! I only knew about the septoplasty till the surgeon said he'd done it!
