Trouble Breathing out of One Nostril?
I had cosmetic rhinoplasty done, a septoplasty, and a turbinectomy (i think). Anyways, this was about a week ago. For the first time since I can remember, I woke up in the middle of the night and could not breath out of my nostril. I did not have breathing problems before. When I went to my cosmetic rhinoplasty appointment, I was told that my septum was deviated and that since we were going for the cosmetic part, we should fix the deviation.My rhinoplasty was done a week ago. Is this normal?
