5 years post op, Rhinoplasty. Is it possible that underlying disorders can cause complications during a procedure?

I didn't know I had lymes disease when I had a rhinoplasty five years ago and since the surgery I have not been myself. I also had a rare complication during the surgery and after a while I put two and two together. Is this possible?

Lyme's disease

Lyme's disease has the potential to cause lots of systemic effects. Best of luck with that.  Hopefully you sought out the right care and are doing better.
