botched nosejob

About 10 years ago I had a nosejob and the doctor removed too much cartilage from the left side. I began getting nosebleeds a few years later and had my nose packed and eventually the nosebleeds stopped, until a few weeks ago when they started again. The doctor told me that there was a hole in the cartilage and put a packing in yesterday. Very uncomfortable and blood is seeping through. I can't lie down because I'm swallowing blood or mucus. He told me that when he removes the packing, which needs to remain in place for a week, if I'm still bleeding he'll have to place an even tighter and more uncomfortable packing. My question is how can all this repair a hole in the cartilage? Am I putting myself through all this for nothing? Isn't there a surgury possible or am I just doomed to spend the rest of my life bleeding from this hole?
