Swelling 5 days after surgery
Hi there, swelling this early after surgery is normal even for a septoplasty and turbinate reduction (which has much less swelling than a rhinoplasty). I do think removing the stents will help with the swelling and will make you feel much better. Hang in there! Hope this helps
