I just have two general questions. The first one is: At about 4-5 months post-op, could it in any way, shape, or form, be dangerous to work out? By this I mean, heavy running, muscle training, etc. The second question is: I heard that steroid injections can be harmful. How is that? And why? And is it a big risk? Thanks...
Open Rhinoplasty - the Months Ahead

Activities after Rhinoplasty
Four or five months after open rhinoplasty, there are no restrictions on my patient's physical activities. There is little risk with very small amounts of cortizone injected into the nose after surgery. If you're asking about systemic steroids, there can be serious complications which should be discussed in detail with the physicians prescribing them.

Exercise and rhinoplasty
There is no greater a risk exercising 5 months after a rhinoplasty than before, as long as you are healed with no problems. Steroid injections can be a problem if not done properly.
