I had a Rhinoplasty yesterday and as I was putting in saline drops today a drop or two streamed upwards into my cast/tape??

I'm really worried as I know it should never get wet?? Is this a disaster?

Drop or Two

No worries.  Keep doing your postop care as instructed by your surgeon.  A small amount of saline solution will not hurt your postop result.   Continue cleaning the incisions with qtips and hydrogen peroxide and apply an antibiotic ointment.  Good luck.
