I had a operation Septplasty & Turbinate reduction late Novemebr last year but my nose still swells up quite a lot every morning but starts to slowly go down during the day.

On the left side of my nose where majority of the op was performed there is a little hump which feels firm & is quite brown then my other skin, could this be scar tissue & the cause of the swelling in the mornings?

nose is always congested in the morning but during the day goes way but couple of weeks ago it wasn't, it was congested all day, even a few months ago & I'm getting a lot of mucus in my throats that i keep spitting out with dry mouth.

My nose does turn slightly red in heat is well

I have an appointment with the doctor but it's in a couple of weeks time.
