Septoplasty done. Nose hurt, bleeding, yellow discharge, unable to smell, taste things. X-ray normal. Infection?

Hallo, I had a septoplasty four weeks ago. I'm still getting some bleeding and a yellow discharge which smells bad. On the day of week 4 me and my boyfriend had a fight and he hit me full on my nose with his head, my nose were bleeding very bad, went to hospital, they took X-rays and said everything looks fine, but now I can't smell or taste most things and I have spot bleeinding and it looks like a yellow discharge coming from my nose, I think its been infected now? I also have terrible headaches, the left side of my face hurts so bad, cheeks, head even my teeth and jaw. My follow up appointment is only in 3 days time.

Hi,
it seems that your septoplasty wound is in healing stage having slight soreness giving rise to some bleeding.
Now due to hard impact injury on nose there might be having more soreness and injury on nasal mucosa might be giving bleeding and infection.
Go for one antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines course.
Apply antibiotic cream locally.
Ok and take care.
