I am 5 days post septoplasty (turbinates also fixed, bone spurs and haller cells removed.) How may I treat my allergies?

Allergies and nasal surgery
I would recommend you discuss this with your surgeon. Every surgeon will have specific medications that they do and do not want you to use. In general I do counsel my patients that they should continue a nasal steroid spray and oral antihistamine if they have nasal allergies, but your surgeon should direct your care. Best wishes
