Why am I still having these symptoms after septoplasty?

I had septoplasty one month ago due to repeated sinus infections cold symptoms muscles aches and extream fatigue. After surgery I can see very slow improvement. Less dizziness ànd fatigue but frequent sore throat, ear tightness all the time. No more blood and crust now but when I blow my nose some green thick mucus with dark bloody crust come. I HV dirty foul smell, still feel lightheadness sometimes. Asked my surgeon he said f9. My Improvement is OK? How much time it will take fully recovered.

Sinus Infection

Hi,
Did you have a septoplasty and endoscopic sinus surgery or septoplasty alone? Based on your symptoms (foul smell, green thick discharge, pressure in your ears), you likely have a current sinus infection.
