Internal Swelling and Smell/Taste
this is a very common question immediately after surgery. This is almost always temporary and is due to the swelling inside the nose. The swelling normally takes weeks to months to resolve. Follow up with your surgeon regularly to make sure it does, but don't despair, it most likely will be fine.
I hope this helps, and I wish you all the best!

Dear jxde1995, i would bring up your concerns to your surgeon he/she will know best where you are in the recovery phase and will be able to perform an intra-nasal examination and answer your concerns. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
Taste and smelling
Thank you for the question and you are still early post op so it is not unusual to still be swollen making it difficult to smell and breathe. That said express your concerns to your surgeon as he knows what he did and where you should be at in your recovery.
