Post deviated septum operation- using saline nasal irrigation

Just had my deviated septum yesterday, feel just fine, but my doctor perhaps forgat to tell me anything about nasal irrigation, when am i suppose to use it and how often. Its my second day after the surgery and im still bleeding so am I suppose to wait till i stop bleeding or should i use it now?

Re: Post deviated septum operation- using saline nasal irrigation

You should probably ask your doctor if he even wants you to use it now or wait a few more days. He might want it to heal a bit more before you start with the irrigation. I would just call and leave a message for his nurse.....you sould have gotten post op instructions though.

I would be leery of doing it this soon. Call and ask for specific instructions.

Re: Post deviated septum operation- using saline nasal irrigation

I had this surgery Tuesday. Just a littlle bleeding which stopped by Wednesday. I was released fromt he hospital on Wednesday and my ENT told me to use it every hour when I was awake. Per the ENT I started before my release. However, I wouild also suggest that you contact your doctor as your case may be different from mine.

The bleeding has stopped and per the ENT the saline solution was started before my release on Wednesday. I was told to use it every hour I was awake. My case may be different from yours so I would advise to contact your doctor.

Update
My ENT has changed her instructions.
I am now requested to use the spray several times a day until I see her in about a month.
