5 months after Rhinoplasty, it is unusual to have constant pain.  There may be some inflammation in your sinuses causing discomfort.  Regardless, this situation needs to be evaluated by your Surgeon as soon as possible.

It is not normal to have pain in your nose and jaw 5 months after rhinoplasty. Schedule an examination by your surgeon. I'm sure he/she will injvestigate to your problems, but if you're not satisfied, get a second opinion.
