I got a septal button put into the hole in my septum yesterday and it is sore. The doctor told me that it would feel like it isn't even there. The one side feels good, but the other feels like my whole nose is clogged up. I was just wondering if it feels like this because it is inflamed or something? I had a ton of blood come out when he put it in
Hi, your symptoms could be due to post procedure inflammation. So, give time for the inflammation to settle down. Anti inflammatory medications may help. However, if the swelling is increasing in size or is becoming more painful or if there is discharge or if you develop fever, consult your doctor to rule out an infection. Take care.
