I have been asked to undergo sinus surgery and SEPTOPLASTY . I can't tolerate the packing. Any alternate to packing?

Nasal packing

The decision for nasal packing after septoplasty and sinus surgery depends on the degree of deviation and also the preferences of your surgeon. It is not an absolute must in every case.
