How to clean the nose - using saline spray when you have dissolvable packing.

I had an open septorhinoplasty 2 days ago and have dissolvable packing. It's still tightly up there bit I was given saline spray to use up my nose. Is this to use once the packing comes out? Does the packing came out on its own or do I have to help the process along by still trying to use the spray even though there looks to be no room up there. I have been cleaning the nostril area but not sure if I should be doing more. Thank you.
