total blockage left nostril

I've been pre-examed for surgical correction of this 13yo condition. Prob is they just don't know what they'll find until digging in. I've a history of chronic infections throughout all ear, nose, throat, and sinuses. In 2009 a golfball sized non-cancerous tumor was removed from my cranial sinus. Recovery was swift and almost instant relief to the left nostril was gained for about 6 months until a botched dental procedure breached my left occular sinus. The blockage reappeared, with a horrible infection. Following antibio's the block remains to date.
My surgeon seems a little vague as to any post op side effects, maybe due to the inability to fully know the scope of the corrective effort.
My questions: 1) What might be the allowable vs the worst side effects I may encounter? Since I'm dealing with swollen, enflamed, possibly infected soft tissue, I don't expect to recover scot-free. and 2) What might be the important questions I need to ask him to feel more informed?
Thank you.
