What to Expect After Surgery
Following sinus surgery patients remain in hospital for 24 hours. Sometimes light packing is used inside the nose.
One week off work is usually adequate as it is not a painful or difficult recovery. Patients feel some congestion, like they have a head cold and occasionally there is a small amount of bleeding.
The improved nasal airway kicks in at about week 1 and the patient will attend Dr Mooney’s clinic several times in the post-operative period to ensure that our planned outcome is achieved.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
