I had Septoplasty with turbinate reduction surgery 04/01/09. My doctor also "rasped" the hump that I had. I got my splint out 8 days later. I can breathe so well, but my hump is still there, and it's bigger. My ENT said he smoothed it down and the bump looked gone during surgery. Could it be swollen just enough to look the same as it used to? Should I worry about scar tissue? Is there anything I can do to get the swelling down?
