Rhino: how bad was the packing?

Ok how bad was the packing? Looks like i'll be having packing in my nose for 3-4 days until they take it out.....and when they take it out, I heard it hurts like hell?

Also, once it's out, I'm seeing stuff about not sneezing and stuff. Was that really tough?

I had mine done at 17 years old and had no idea my nose could even hold that much packing. TBH I passed out when they took it out.

Well I've had rhino now! And guess what? My doc didn't do packing anymore! I was so relieved.

They just put 2 stints in the nose instead so it was definitely still hard to breathe through the nose but not impossible. This meant no sore throat or any of that.

6 weeks post-op today. It's going ok. My cheeks are finally not as swollen and my nose is starting to look cute? But they say it takes a year for the nose to finally look how it should.

As far as pain and stuff....weirdly enough my doc didn't prescribe narcotics or anything. It was mostly anti-neausa, anti-inflammatory and ibuprofin and tylenol. I didn't believe it at first but it really did work.

Ask your PS if you can wet your packing with saline nasal water right before. It will help loosen up any dry blood that has stuck to your skin.

This is what I did and it worked perfectly. No pain!
