Wisdom teeth removed. Started periodic popping noise coming from nostril. What is going on?

Ever since I got my wisdom teeth removed in November, I ve had a periodic popping noise (like a bubble popping) coming from my right nostril (they punctured the right nasal cavity during the extraction) accompanied by the smell of sulfur . Sometimes if I hold my head upside down, there will be a fishy smell as well. This never happened before the surgery. What is going on?
