Bleeding after rhinoplasty
Dear mmir85, I recommend following up with your rhinoplasty surgeon. You can be experiencing a posterior nose bleed and that is why you feel the bleeding/clots down your throat and not coming out the front of your nose. Some gentle oozing can be experienced after removal of nasal packing but this should not persist. I strongly urge you to follow up with your surgeon to be evaluated and a nasal exam completed. Best of luck!
Touch base with your surgeon
I would recommend following up with your surgeon as your nose heals to ensure the best outcome.
