I had my nose narrowed and tip refined. 5 weeks after surgery I discovered gauze still in the right side of my nose which had began to attach to my tissue. No infection and everything fine however I have bump on side and in area where gauze was. Now it's 5 months later and bump is hard and pronounced. My doctor is down playing it but I would like to know what is the relation between the gauze being left there for so long and my bump. Thanks
