Overview of recovery after nasal septum surgery/ septoplasty
After your deviated septum surgery or septoplasty, you will be discharged the same day or next day. There is no long hospital stay necessary after this procedure. You will be given medications and a certain set of instructions to follow at home after your surgery. It is very important to follow your doctor’s recommendations after septoplasty or complications such as bleeding or swelling may occur.
To further reduce the risk of complications, your ENT doctor may ask you to follow precautions for a few weeks after the surgery, including-
Elevate your head while sleeping
Avoid working out and playing contact sports
Avoid blowing your nose
While pulling shirts over your head, be very careful
You can expect to return to regular activities after a couple of days, and strenuous physical activities should be restricted for about 4 weeks after septoplasty. Do not blow your nose at least for the first 2 weeks after septoplasty may cause bleeding. If needed, you can clean your nose with nasal saline irrigations.
Doctors recommend waiting for at least 4 weeks before you begin exercising again. Playing contact and strenuous sports should be strictly avoided to minimize the risk of nose trauma or injury. If you are a smoker, your ENT surgeon will recommend you to quit smoking for a few weeks prior to the operation as smoking prolongs recovery time after the surgery and can also cause post-operative complications.
