Persisted deviation: If the primary reason for septoplasty was deviated septum, or correction of collapsed septum, the deformity may have persisted or recurred.It could be a chronic septal hematoma or may be internal valve problem.Your best course is to go back to your original surgeon for help, or fiind another one who can help you.

Retained splint?: It is possible that one of the splints used during the first week to stabilize the septum was inadvertently left in the nose.
