Stuffy nose after examination
Heat, sun, salt, and hard exercise may increase swelling of your nose after it has gone down. Over 6-9 months the overall swelling should become less with fewer flares of puffiness/stuffiness.
If there are any additional symptoms: redness, pain, fever, drainage, or other concerns, it's always a good idea to see your surgeon for an examination. Safety comes first.
I would recommend following up with your surgeon as your nose heals to ensure the best outcome.
