I run daily and am wondering how soon after my rhinoplasty surgery I can get back to my regular active routine? What are the concerns of doing too much too soon?
I have been told that every time you put your foot down while running you can transmit 250 foot pounds of pressure to your nose,; this is a lot of force. It may hurt. We ask our patients not to exercise extensively for 3 weeks to avoid bleeding. We ask that you not blow your nose for 3 weeks to avoid the risk of a blood clott in the septum. Our patients start light exercise like an elliptical exerciser at 3 weeks and go back to full exercise at one month. No diving, however, for 6 weeks.
