    Re: why after sinus surgery is there a smell left in the nose

    There are two smells after sinus surgery. The first comes when the splints are taken out. You will smell a smoky, acrid odor coming from your nose for a few days. After that there is one that smells like dirty feet, or smelly socks. I usually find that one getting worse when I need to use my saline rinse. I asked my dr. about both smells, and he said both were normal after surgery. Hope that helps!
