POST-PROCEDURE

Once the surgery is completed, you will need to adhere to certain guidelines for a quick and complete recovery:


What to expect:

  • Do not try to breathe through the nose

  • It is important to take medications as prescribed by the doctor 

  • You may get out of bed to go to the bathroom with assistance, but not unaided

  • A light pack will be placed in the nostrils, which will be removed after 24 hours 

  • Cold gauze pads placed over the eyes will help to reduce any swelling that may occur

  • Moderate bleeding from the nose is normal, the gauze dressing will collect the blood

  • The outside of the nostrils may be cleansed with cotton bud applicators saturated with either water or vaseline
