Re: To anyone who had sinus surgery or septoplasty
I just had septoplasty & turbo reduction. Packing out the day after surgery, and it only stung abit...trust me you won't pass out, but will get a little tear in your eye. Four days later splints came out, took two oxycodines before, but really didn't need them. Those splints just slid out very easy...no pain at all. However, day after splint removal, nose still plugged up. Was disappointed and discouraged...guess I expected better, however, other people have told me that the swelling and crusting will go away in a couple of weeks and the breathing will be again great. Looking forward to that day. Probably the worst part was the packing the first night....breathing thru mouth got it really dry...use ice chips and chap stick...does wonders. Anyway, it is not as terrifying as other posts I have read.
