It will be a week since surgery tomorrow and the bleeding has subsided but congestion and facial pressure is still a concern. Very lightly blowing my nose produces a lot of blood, my ears keep popping as well.

I had my surgery 6 days ago. There's no more seeping and i actually feel nearly back to normal.

Generally the recovery time for outpatient surgery is 6 to 8 weeks. It also depends on the procedure you are having done. Sinus surgery can mean any number of things like frontal sinusectomy or anterior ethmoidectomy.
