I am having a septoplasty/rhinoplasty this Wednesday to correct breathing problems. I was told the basics of what to avoid but never a full list. Last night I was feeling a bit bloated and took less than 15 mg of Pepto (The recommended dosage is 30mg). I just found out it has aspirin in it. My question is will this affect my bleeding? Will it cause my surgery to get rescheduled? I took a really tiny amount and my surgery is still 5 days away. Thanks in advance for the answers.
Took Pepto-Bismol 5 days before Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty, what are the risks? Should surgery be postponed?

I recommend discussing this with your own surgeon and let him make the final judgement. Trust your surgeon's judgement. Given the minimal dose you took, I would not be concerned but if your surgeon is, I would trust him. All the best and good luck with your surgery!
