Is it normal to have to have turbinates cauterized after a septoplasty and turbinate reduction?
I had a septoplasty with turbinate reduction 4 weeks ago. This past weekend (3.5 weeks after surgery) I had several horrible nosebleeds like I have never had in my life. I went into my dr.'s office on Monday and he cauterized my turbinates. I am 2 hours away from home right now and the horrible bleeding started again at 12am last night with 4 huge clots the size of my nose coming out. Is this normal for after this type of surgery and also after cauterization? All my thanks in advance!
