Repair of Oromaxillary Fistula - What to Expect After Surgery

Your doctor will prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection and a decongestant to keep the sinuses clear. You probably will take these medicines for a week to 10 days.

You will be given a list of precautions to follow to avoid changes in pressure between the mouth and nasal passages. Be sure to keep your mouth open when you sneeze. And don't smoke, blow your nose, or suck on items such as straws, hard candy, or ice.
