You can expect to have some pain after a septoplasty.  However, if it persists for more than a week or it's unusual or extreme, you should definitely follow up with your surgeon soon.

Pain after Septoplasty

It is not normal to have persistent or new pain starting 2 weeks after surgery to straighten the septum. I recommend you contact your surgeon as soon as reasonably possible.

Pain

Pain, to some degree, is to be expected after nasal surgery. However, new or unexplained symptoms should b evaluated. It is probably not anything at all, but I would advise you to go in and see your doctor, just to be safe.

Post op pain

It sounds from your description as if this is a new development. Since I always think it best to err on the side of caution, call your surgeon and schedule an appointment to have this pain assessed in person.
