Thank you for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I can understand your problem.
Your xray is nearly normal, there is very small fracture line in post part of nasal bone but it is not complete and there is no displacement. Only a displaced fracture needs reduction and treatment, in your case you don't require any treatment for same. Bleeding from nose is very common without post operative status also as mucosa is very thin and vascular, so this will also improve. Still can get opinion from your ENT surgeon, let him examine with endoscope so he will able to reassure with more confidence.
Hope this helps

Thank you very much for your response. I do have an appointment to see my ENT later this week, as I can hardly breathe out of my right nostril. My nose now has a different shape, though that isn't terribly upsetting. I am concerned about my septum, however. My main question is that the x-ray shows striations or lines below the nasal bone, and I would like to know what those are. I've viewed other lateral X-rays and do not see them. So, as my original question indicated, what are those lines on the xray? My septum, cartiledge damage, or artifact from the surgery?
This Striations below nasal bone may be fracture in septal cartilage, but it is
difficult to comment on cartilage finding based on xray. we can see these lines
because xray is very good quality.
It is difficult to say whether this is due to
trauma or due to surgical trauma also, but trauma on cartilage during surgery is
not common. But if there is no significant swelling on septum (collection of blood
between septal cartilage and mucosa) then it doesn't require any treatment.So if
you do not have significant nasal obstruction then nothing to worry.
Feel free to discuss further,
Hope this helps
