It has been two weeks since I got a septoplasty and my nose is starting to hurt again.

Two weeks ago I got a septoplasty, since I had a deviated septum and kept getting sinus infections. I do the saline washes once a day, especially when my nose feels stuffy. Now my nose is starting to hurt again and I keep getting headaches right above my eyebrows. I'm worried and would want to know if these are symptoms of my nose getting infected?

You must see your surgeon as after 2 weeks it is abnormal to have significant pain so it is worth excluding infection
