Hi there ~

It is not uncommon after a deviated septum surgery to have epistaxis (bleeding from your nose) when your packing is being removed. Swollen eyes and tearing may be a side effect of surgery or you may have a conjunctival infection for which you need to see an ophthalmologist. I hope you consult your surgeon as soon as possible to relieve your doubts.

I hope this helped. Take care and have a lovely day !
