Re: Sinus Surgery Recovery

I never even heard about any stents from my Doctor. So, if they are deep down in there, how do they remove them? They don't just leave them in there do they?
If he used stents he'll remove them at your first follow up visit, but many doctors don't use them (or only use them for certain procedures). They're easily (and painlessly) removed in the office using forceps.
