5 weeks post op
Blocked nose and swelling are both normal during the early stages of healing (early weeks post-op) but bad smell, accompanied by pain, should always warrant further examination, to check for possible residual packing or possible infection. Blockage if it causes difficulty of breathing, should also be examined for any crusting that can be cleared out to ease your breathing.

Since cleaning it with a q-tip and the saline spray don't seemed to have improved your condition, I think it would be best to err on the side of caution and schedule an appointment with your surgeon to get the situation assessed in person. Hope this helps.
