If you have had surgery in the sinus region or surgery that was very close to your sinuses, please follow the recommendations below:

FOR THE NEXT 10-14 DAYS

  1. No nose blowing
  2. If you must sneeze, sneeze with your mouth open.
    1. This prevents backpressure into the nose and sinus by opening the mouth and allowing air to come out of the mouth as well as the nose.
  3. Avoid smoking
  4. Do not use a straw when drinking
    1. This will cause back pressure in the sinus passages.
  5. Maintain antibiotic therapy and decongestants as directed
