Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for query.
I have gone through your query regarding severe pain
after 10 days of rhinoplasty
operation. You have asked weather it is a sign of infection or healing ?
Since 10 days have pssed of operation therefore the recovery time is now over. After 10 days development of severe pain and mucous discharge indicates about infection.
To manage it you should take these precautions and treatment -
(a) Try to avoid nose pricking as to save nostril from infection.
(b) Antibiotic should be taken, preferably one which has gram positive , gram negative and anaerobic coverage.
(c) Anti inflammatory.
(e) Steam inhalation.
I hope this will help you.
