What should I expect after sinus surgery?

After the operation, you’ll be brought out of anesthesia and taken to a recovery room. There, you’ll be observed for a while to make sure there are no complications.

If you’re doing well, you’ll be discharged to go home. You won't be able to drive right after sinus surgery so make sure you have someone to drive you home. Before you leave, you’ll get instructions about what should happen while your nose and sinuses heal, when to get immediate attention, and when to schedule follow-up appointments. You will also be under medication for a few days.
