1. USUAL POSTOP COURSE: There may or may not be discomfort, nasal congestion or bad breath after surgery. Some patients have very mild or no or symptoms at all.
  2. PAIN: Prescription pain medication or Tylenol may be used as needed for discomfort.
  3. DIET: Begin with soft foods and progress to a normal diet.
  4. PROBLEMS: Fever 101 degrees or above, nausea, vomiting, or bleeding from the nose or mouth. Call the office (day or night).  Sometimes bleeding needs to be evaluated in the emergency room. Significant bleeding may need to be treated in the operating room.

You should have a post op appointment for  2  weeks after surgery.

For questions, problems or refills, call the office at (425) 775-6651.

Pain medications require a written prescription, so call for a refill before you run out of medication.

Medication or refill requests must be made during office hours.

There is always a doctor on call for emergent problems after office hours: (425) 775-6651
