After my nose job about 3 months ago, I've noticed that when I burp my left ear will make a noise (as if it's popping).

I never have had this issue before until now. Is this common? why is it happening? how can i fix it? It's almost like their is fluid in their or the connection with my nose and ear is different with draining, possibly?
