Swan LogoINSTRUCTIONS FOR HOME CARE AFTER EAR SURGERY

Avoid blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If you do sneeze, cough or blow your nose, open your mouth.

Do not strain or lift. If you must pick up an object off the floor, bend at the knees. You may not do housework, yard work or return to regular working duties until otherwise instructed.

Keep your ear dry. You may replace the cotton ball and Band-Aid dressing if it gets soiled. Be careful not to remove the packing within the ear canal.

At night, sleep with three pillows under your head. Do not lie flat.

If you notice increased dizziness, bloody or purulent (pus) drainage, or increased pain, please call this office at 692-4500.

Do not smoke!!

Do not drink alcohol with your medication!!

You will be checked approximately one week after surgery at which time your bandage will be removed, and if necessary, stitches will be removed. You will have regular follow-ups thereafter.
