How soon after sinus surgery can you do nasal irrigation?

I had sinus surgery and septoplasty about 3 weeks ago. My doctor wants me to continue using saline and I can blow my nose lightly, but I'm ready to get all the gunk out and want to use my Neilmed. Is it too soon or ok?

You should check with your doctor, but when I had sinus surgery I started irrigating with a Sinus Rinse bottle after 24 hours at my doctor's direction.

My doctor had me wait a couple weeks. I think it all depends on each individual doctor and what exactly they did. Give you doc a quick call and ask if you can do sinus rinses yet. It felt so much better once I did that (and still feel better whenever I do them and have a sinus infection...those things are great for clearing all the yucky stuff out!!).
