Intense pressure on one side of the face post after back to back embolization surgery, diagnosed with black and dying turbinate. Advised suction of dead particles. What could the procedure be?

Nonnyto3I had 2 (back -to-back) embolyization surgery on the sephtinepalantine artery (sp?) on both sides of my nose . I now have horrible pressure on the left side of my face to where i can t tollerate it w/o pain medication (which keeps me from being able to work). I followed up with my ENt and he was able to suction some risidual blood, but also told me that my turbinate was black and dying and that he would need to see me in a week to suction/remove any dead particals. What does this mean?
