I had surgery yesterday to fix a broken nose and have been hacking up balls of blood. Is that normal?

Yes: Whether for trauma or for cosmetic purposes, nasal surgery will often result in postoperative mucosal bleeding, but it should slow down over a few days. If it is bright red or increasing, call your surgeon ASAP. ...Read more

Insurance : Insurance may cover revision of breathing difficulties but this surgery may produce little if any change in your appearance. If you are looking for a cosmetic rhinoplasty, your insurance is unlikely to cover any of the expense. However, if you are looking for a functional rhinoplasty such as a septoplasty, spreader grafts, turbinate resection, etc., insurance may cover a portion. ...Read more

Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, your nose is unlikely to return to its pre-injury position on its own. In the first 10 days or so it is possible for a surgeon to perform what is called a closed reduction. We don't typically do this bare handed, but rather use instruments to reposition the deviated nasal structure without making any incisions. You may have a deviated septum as well, which would lead to nasal obstruction. Sometimes this will improve with resetting the nose, but a septoplasty may ultimately be needed to fully improve your breathing. ...Read more

Since : Since he has such persistent symptoms, I am glad that he is going back in to be seen. He may need a scope procedure to look into the sinus areas and see what the problem is. I assume he is taking a decongestant as well; if not he should be. If nothing is seen by scoping him, he may indeed need another ct scan to evaluate his persistent symptoms. ...Read more

It : It sounds like you have narrowing of the right nasal airway due to your prior injury. This isn't something you have to have fixed if it doesn't bother you. The main concern would be if a separate mass was seen growing in the nose. You could always get a second opinion from a different ENT doctor to see what your options are. ...Read more
