Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
You must see a Ear,nose and throat doctor who shall give nasal drops (oxymetazoline) for blocked nose and make you comfortable with nasal breathing again. Codiene is helpful for cough and causes sedation. Do not worry 2-3 days rest shall restore you. Take hot beverages, tea and coffee to keep you more alert.
