Your Surgeon Knows Best
I certainly understand your eagerness to remove your splint as soon as you can. Without knowing a lot about your case, 2 weeks does seem a little long. Only your surgeon knows the full details of your surgery, though, so please check with him or her to see if it's possible to remove your splint earlier. Good luck to you.

Typically after the hump is taken down, the nasal bones are narrowed to close the "open roof", The caste helps keep the nasal bones in place. I typically keep the external splint on for 7 days but it is very important to follow your surgeon's guidelines. If you wish to permeate from those guidelines, it is very important to talk to your surgeon first.All the best!!
