Bleeding and Swelling post Septoplasty

Hi Msahouri,
I assume that by this time of answering, you have already seen your doctor, but to address your concern, it is actually normal to have bruising and swelling, and even bleeding at 1 day post op, however, bleeding should be very minimal and should not persist continuously for 12 hours. If this happens, contact your surgeon immediately.
