I had an open septorhinoplasty Tuesday around 3 and I am in so much pain.
Please call your surgeon's office immediately to discuss your discomfort. It is unusual to be in this much pain several days following surgery. Best.

This is not a question that should be answered on Realself. You need to call your surgeon right now. Maybe you have splints in that could come out. Maybe you need have an infection. Maybe you need some oral steroids. Don't listen to random strangers on the internet.
2 days post op, some advices:
Thank you very much for enquire.
It's too early to make value judgments at this point of your post op.
Swelling after a rhinoplasty depends of the surgery complexity.
In this regard, the nasal swelling Post-op It can last from two weeks to two months.
To reduce this swelling, I recommend you perform delicates daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the face (around the nose) avoid sun exposure, and take pain/inflamation pills, as your surgeron precribe you.
