A little painful: I won't lie - there's some pain involved when taking out an internal nasal splint. Some bleeding can occur too.

Nasal splints: When used, they usually are removed within a week of your surgery as they can be uncomfortable. Ask your surgeon about his/her protocol as it can differ but you don't want to let them forget about it.
