Nasal tampon is a thin dressing lubricated with ointment. Nasal tampon is pulled out at the same evening of the surgery by Dr Hosnani’s trained personnel at the clinic or the day after surgery at the doctor’s office. Resist the temptation to pull it out by yourself or an untrained person.
It is difficult to breathe while you are having a nasal tampon inside your nose. Therefore, you have to breathe through your mouth. This makes your mouth dry so it is advised to drink more water and liquids. Leaking of thick bloody fluids on the dressing is natural.
After the nasal tampon is pulled out, Breathing will be much easier and a lot of pressure on your nose will be relieved. nevertheless, because of the swelling, it is still difficult to breath for a week.
