The doctor did turbinate reduction, fixed the deviated septum, lifted the tip, made the nose shorter and narrower. So there was a lot of work done. Right now, three days after surgery, my nose is still bleeding from time to time, & I think there is dried blood & clots in my nose which is making me feel stuffed. The doctor tried to suction things out of my nose a day after surgery, but it was too painful and had him stop. What can I do at home to help? My nose is still swollen from the inside.
What can I do to clear my nose after a septorhinoplasty? I feel congested.
