Do Not Remove Dressings Yourself
I'm sorry your dressing and nasal packing are making you uncomfortable. However, it's imperative that you do not attempt to remove the packing yourself. This must be done in your surgeon's office to make sure it's removed safely. As another respondent suggested, if you're really experiencing a lot of discomfort, you can try visiting the emergency department of your local hospital to see a doctor there. Otherwise, try to be patient and distract yourself from the discomfort until your surgeon's office is open next. Best of luck to you.
