Follow-up after nose surgery

You would do best to get in touch with your surgeon regarding your concerns.  You could have an infection or localized reaction to the injected medication.  Give your surgeon's office a call and schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss your concerns and undergo an exam.  Good luck!
