Once the septum is repaired during septoplasty, how resilient is it? I underwent septoplasty, turbinate resection and sinus polypectomy on Friday 12/14/12. Scar tissue and a septal bone spur which had been blocking the maxillary sinus ostium were also removed. Splints to brace the septum were placed and they will be removed tomorrow 12/21/12. I feel that the surgeon did an outstanding job, and overall I am extremely pleased with my results just one week after surgery! My main concern today is how stable the septum is. How fast does it fully heal back into place? If I bump the tip of my nose am I going to disrupt the septum?? KBinNM
