thank you - i wondered how long it took for you to be able to be working again and to breath better
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
my surgery is on tuesday - day procedure but might be in overnight becasue of distance from the hospital to home
Expert:  Nurse72 replied 2 years ago.
I had the surgery on a Thursday and was back at work on Monday. I was able to breathe as soon as they took out the packing. I was advised to use afrin to control swelling in the nasal passages and used it for about a week. I was able to breathe perfectly within a couple of days. I did have significant bruising around my eyes but that was because they had to break my nose for the rhinoplasty. You may not need this.
