Dear Matt, See your surgeon and discuss these problems. He/she may want to put you on  a decongestant/antihistamine. Continue to sleep elevated with a few pillows behind your back and I would also suggest limiting dairy products at this time. Again see your surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
