Paine after septoplasty

It is very unusual to have severe pain or discomfort seven months after septoplasty.  Have your surgeon look for oxposed bone or cartilage.  YOu may want to get a second opinion.

Recovery after septoplasty

What you are describing is certainly not typical 7 months after septoplasty.  I recommend following up with your surgeon so that she/he may evaluate you in person.
