What is this pain I'm feeling after having a septoplasty?

Most patients at 4 days after surgery would still be expected to have pain in the face and around the bridge of the nose. I would not worry that this is due to a problem. If you are experiencing severe pain, nasal blockage, redness, fever, or pus like drainage however these are signs of infection and you should see your surgeon ASAP.
