What are some complications that can occur after a nasal surgery?

Several

Scarring
The most common complication is bleeding postoperatively. Other complications include septal perforations, scarring, loss of smell and taste as well as possible need for for further surgery. If you include sinus operations the complications there include potential eye injury, brain injury, and brain fluid leak. If your surgeon is very experienced and does lots of nasal and sinus surgery the risk of complication is significantly less.

A dry cough without other symptoms can be treated with a mild cough suppressant, such as "DM" or dextromethorphan containing cough syrups. If it persists, produces colored sputum, or includes fever, wheezing or shortness of breath, a doctor evaluation is needed.

Dr. John E. McClay answered:

I hit my nose and it won't stop bleeding. What can I do?

Pinch nose,use Afrin

Ocean
Nosebleeds occur for a variety of reasons. In children, 90% of nose bleeds occur in the front near the nostrils, which is why pinching the nose helps stop it, since pressure is applied. In adults, it can also be posteriorly as well, so pinching helps in fewer cases. Lean head forward, not backward, so you do not swallow the blood. Spray Afrin. See your doctor/ENT to look in nose and discuss causes

My nose been bleeding for a whole week and wont stop bleeding what can I do?

Medical evaluation.

Epiglottitis
You may have a blood vessel in one of your nostrils that is damaged. With a week of bleeding it is important that this be treated. See that you are dizzy with morning sickness. If you have bled heavily that could be one of the reasons. If you are actively bleeding now, I would just go to an emergency room. take care.

Nose that won't seem to heal for years. what would be a good home remedy to stop the nasal bleeding?

Moisturization

Epiglottitis
A dry irritated nasal lining can be painful, result in stuffiness and bleed. This is generally more common during the dry winter months, assuming you live in an area where it gets cold and dry. You can use Vaseline in small amounts, Ayr saline gel or Ponaris nasal Emollient (you may have trouble finding it but ask your pharmacist)All intranasally. If no better, see an ENT doctor
