Dear b301,

  • You should be seen by your doctor about the dizzy spells
  • It should not be related to surgery, and you may have something else going on that can be treated
  • Your nose is still healing so it still may hurt if you move it, and only a physical exam can tell us
  • The bright side is that your breathing is better
