Nose bleed?

Hello everyone! My dvh was Friday morning at around 0730. I was discharged from the hospital yesterday (Saturday) around 11am. Since being home, I have had a lot of blood in my nose...not a full on bloody nose, but can easily blow it or wipe it and get quite a bit of blood. Could this just be because of the oxygen, and then the pain meds drying me out? Anyone else experience this? And if yes, how long will it last? Thanks for any advice!

Re: Nose bleed?

It might just be from the dry air at the hospital. If you can, you might run a vaporizer in your home, particularly your bedroom. You might try saline nose spray too.

I had one, full-on nosebleed a few days after being home from the hospital. It stopped in a reasonable amount of time and I occasionally have them, so I don't know if it had anything to do with the surgery or not.

Re: Nose bleed?

This may sound a little gross, but I was blowing out of my nose hard slightly bloody crusty ones for about a week post-op. I didn't know when it would stop but it eventually just did. I figured it was possibly due to being upside down for two hours *shrugs shoulders*

Re: Nose bleed?

It's from the Oxygen they give you.
It dries out the lining of the nose and causes it to crack. Give it a week or two and it should clear up. I was on oxygen the entire time in the hospital and I bled for a long time after.
