In brief: Pain and pressure

Intermittent pain and pressure of the nose after rhinoplasty is normal.
Every passing week it should be less and less.

In brief: Yes - no problem

Iris, your nose can be tender 10 days after surgery.
It's nothing to worry about unless it's worsening or there is some sign of an infection. From the way you describe your situation, it sounds like all is well. Enjoy your new appearance! jeff spiegel www.Drspiegel.Com.
