Shot in the dark here but has anyone had a septoplasty before? Just had one on Thursday and I'm miserable. I know it'll be great once they take the splints out this Wednesday but until, any tips?

Don't sneeze and ask people not to make you laugh/smile. (Protip: avoid consulting memes - McBee knocks it out of the park!) Once they remove the splints, you can use a qtip to pull out the gunk along the bottom - but be careful not to damage the septum.

They removed about 2/3 of mine and it has been the greatest thing ever. Never have a plugged nose anymore, not even with a massive cold. My sense of smell has also dramatically improved, but ymmv. I've heard smell going both ways.

Wait you still have a splint in? Thanks for all of the info!
