Pain after rhinoplasty with exercising

Pain as a result of exercising after a rhinoplasty is common. It usually last for the duration of the exercising and then some but clear quickly. It's thought to be due to blood flow though a still healing operative site. The solution is simple, stop exercising for a while, say 2 weeks, then try again. Keep going til the pain no longer occurs.
