Just been admitted into hospital as the NHS had realised i had deviated septum. So I have had septoplasty in order to fix this, the only issue is that i have a hump on my nose which im really concerned about. I would love for it to not be there but cant pay the £7000. I have a follow up appointment in 4 weeks approx, what should i say to the doctor?

I assume that you received the septoplasty for health reasons, so are you concerned about this bump on your nose for similar reasons? If so, it is worth bringing it up. However, if it is purely for cosmetic reasons I highly doubt the NHS will fund it, unless it is causing significant psychological distress. They have information about cosmetic procedures on the NHS here:

The hump is a cosmetic issue (as far as I can tell), so this will most likely not be covered by NHS

I mean, mention it to the doctor, and see what they say. But you may just end up with referrals to a private plastic surgeon
