Had the surgery done Monday morning and then the splints were removed Wednesday morning. I keep reading that people would have their splints removed 7-10 later, with this in mind does it make me more at risk of my septum not healing properly being there’s no support? Just afraid I’m going to bump it or something and mess it up.
Second question was I’m told to spread ointment along the stitches to keep them moist. I can’t even see where the stitches are, should I just take a q-tip and spread it along the inside wall?
I imagine this is normal but after I had the splints removed, I could breath perfectly, now it’s going back to slowly stuffed the next day… same for others?
