How bad does it hurt to get the stitches removed from a septo-rhinoplasty? Is it really bad? Should I take pain medicine before I go to get it done?
Not the worst . I would have someone bring you to the appointment and take 1-2 of the pain pills an hour before you go. There will be some weird pulling/tugging sensations and some suctioning of mucous, allowing you to breathe better after all is removed. Think of how good you will feel once it is done and you will make it through!
Yes, take the pills. It is not extremely uncomfortable, but if you are worries, you should take the pills just in case. Also, it depends on whether you have incisions with sutures on the base of your nose, or just inside (which aren't typically removed). Typically the septoplasty has no sutures to be removed, but each surgeon has slightly different techniques and sutures they place.
Not bad. It is not very painful to get the stitches out. If you take pain medicine be sure to have someone else drive you there!
