A clear string came out of my nose when I picked it 1 week post op. What happened? I also feel a bump on the top right (Photo)

This appears to be a dissolvable suture that was placed to close a mucosal incision inside your nose. These usually dissolve on their own. Any dorsal irregularities you notice now may resolve as swelling improves. It is best to wait a few weeks.

Appears as a suture? But why have you NOT called your chosen operative surgeon FIRST!. Go see him/her TODAY.
