Post Operative Instructions for An Opening to the Sinus

  1. Do not blow your nose.
  2. If you must sneeze, do so with your mouth open to avoid any unnecessary pressure.
  3. Do not smoke. Smoking greatly inhibits the healing.
  4. Do not take liquids in through a straw.
  5. Take your antibiotics as directed, until finished.
  6. You may have some bleeding from the nose. This is not uncommon and should pass quickly.
  7. If you feel congested, you may need to use antihistamines. If you do, use over the counter products such as SudafedĀ® or DimetappĀ®. Also avoid nasal sprays unless they are saline.
