Trouble Breathing and Nasal Voice After Rhinoplasty, Is This Normal?
I had rhinoplasty about 5 weeks ago and I'm realizing that my voice is very nasal now. I also feel that I have to strain my voice to speak loudly...otherwise people can't really hear me. I feel very congested still. Is this normal after 5 weeks? I heard that it could be swelling and I'm hoping that is the only issue. I don't want my voice to sound nasal permanently. I had rhinoplasty/septoplasty and my turbinates/sinus worked on.
