I had Septoplasty 6 days ago and went for my follow up appoinment today he says he's happy enough and that am free to go but to come back to him in 3 months (only) if am not happy, anyway when I got back home decided I would clear abit of my nose to relieve congestion but next thing I know I got a dizzy spell am just wondering if that is normal? Thanks

Dizziness after surgery
This may be due to dehydration. Usually blood loss is not that much with septoplasty and this would be an unlikely cause. If you have persistent episodes, you need to have it worked up by your surgeon or primary care doctor. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
