Regardless of splints or no splints, there can be bleeding up to 2 week after the surgery. Removing the splint generally does not cause additional bleeding.
When I have my nose splints removed after septoplasty/polyp removal, will this cause additional bleeding?

Additional bleeding after splint removal for septoplasty
In Our Practice, We Do Not Place Splints in the In the Nose after a Septoplasty Procedure, Therefore there is No Additional Bleeding. Patient's Can Still Have Nosebleeds After Septoplasty and Sinus Surgery for the First 2 Weeks.
