What was the pre-operative and the post-operative diagnosis made? What was the surgical procedure performed? There are various tumours in the nose and surgery differs for each variety. It is indeed difficult to say whether your husband will recover from this or not until you can furnish answers to the above questions.

How many days since the operation? It could be temporary if it's only been few days since the operation because of local swelling and tissue injury around the nerves. If it doesn't come back in like 2 or 3 weeks, it can be because of nerve damage. But please consult with the surgeon who did the operation to have yourself examined and find if the nerve is damaged or not?
