Is sinus surgery painful?

Not everyone tolerates pain the same way. Most patients are able to keep pain under control with oral pain pills after this procedure.

The procedure itself is not considered painful. However, you might experience some pain at the follow-up appointment when the doctor removes the nasal packing from your nose. The reason for this is that the tissue and fluid inside your nose might stick to the packing material, making it difficult to remove.
