I had septoplasty on Wednesday, this afternoon I had my first shower after surgery and gently cleaned out the nostrils of excess blood stones and debris. After cleaning unnoticed a very cheesy puss smell coming from where the scabs are. I am worried about infection etc
Nun gave you very good advice.
Yellow/green foul smelling drainage is NOT a sign of infection.
Monitor your temperature. Taking it in your ear or under your arm would me more comfortable as I'm sure you are stuffy.
Did they give you complete discharge instructions because there are quite a few and important.
Like NOT blowing your nose, avoiding constipation, sleeping with your head on 3-4 pillows, eating clear cold fluids like popsicles , etc
If you want me to give you more I'd be happy to.
