After Turbinate Surgery
After nasal surgery facial pressure and headache are common. During the first 24-48 hours the nasal splints are in place and can be the cause of additional discomfort. When Dr. Chu removes the splints, much of the discomfort is relieved.

Dr. Chu rarely packs the nose for this surgery.

Oral antibiotics are often used for several days and pain medications are often prescribed. As with any medication, if there are any reactions, please stop the medication and call the office.
