6 days after rhino- straining?

Hi, I had my rhinoplasty done almost a week ago. I've been straining a bit when going to the bathroom the last two days and am worried it'll alter my result and change the suturing (cartilage and nostril)? Am I paranoid?

6 days post rhinoplasty

Thank you for your question.  This could be the effects of anesthesia or if you are taking pain medications it is a side effect.  When patients have questions I always invite them to call  my office so I can fully evaluate the situation. Best of luck!
