I recently had this surgery in November to fix a left side deviated septum. Now the right side is narrower and it feels as if there is an obstruction near the faxial sinus cavity. This caused cheek inflammation and discomfort. My Dr. removed "crust" from that area which offered relief but the same is now returning. Is this normal and will it clear and open eventually?
