Different Splints Used in Nasal Packing?
I had open septo-rhino on Mon, and the packing/splints removed Tues. I looked up there today (had felt it the rest of the week), and noticed there is another piece of plastic in each nostril, tied with a suture. Are there different types of splints, with different purposes? My appt on Monday to have the cast/sutures removed is almost here, and I was trying to figure out if it's going to be an easy appt, or if having these things removed will make for a painful afternoon! Thx
