What should I expect after surgery?

You will have some fatigue and will want to take it easy for about a week.  Most people return to work that does not involve strenuous physical activity in about a week.  However, some people return earlier and some require longer recuperating.  You will have same nasal stuffiness and some bloody nasal drainage for several days.  We will also have you irrigating with saline and will most likely have you on antibiotics and/or steroids. Our post operative instructions can be viewed above.

It is expected, however, that a full recover will take 4 to 6 weeks.  The most common symptoms that linger after the first week or two are post nasal drainage, cough, fatigue and mild facial pressure.  For people who are very active, the fatigue that accompanies any surgical recovery is often the most noticeable symptom.
