Snoring after septo/rhinoplasty
Its been 40 days since my septo/rhinoplasty. I can breathe freely from both nostrils. However i snore a lot in the night and back of my nose feels wierd when blowing. Is my nose still healing ?or does the snoring go away after sometime? I have another appointment with the surgeon in 15 days.

Since you are already due for your appointment with your Surgeon, discuss this with him and get a Sleep Study done. A postoperative CT scan of nose and throat region (NCCT-PNS including both mastoids in field) should rule out any postoperative complications which could be corrected by your surgeon.
Next Steps
If Sleep Study confirms OSA, then go in for a Dynamic Sleep MRI which will help reveal the location of the airway obstruction and also points towards the corrective remedy.
