It is understandable to have apprehension related to the potential irritable effects of nasal packing. Nasal packing commonly will be associated with nasal and sinus discomfort after a nasal, or nasal sinus surgery. Generally, rubber splints or no splints at all are utilized after a septoplasty, or sinus surgery. Often I will place soft rubbery doyle splints which are well tolerated by most patients. Painful nasal packing is not required in most nasal, or sinus related surgeries.
I have been asked to undergo sinus surgery and SEPTOPLASTY . I can't tolerate the packing. Any alternate to packing?
