I had a papilloma removed 3 weeks ago. I also received a skin graft to replace the removed papilloma. This week I swam and became ill with a virus. After 2 days of vomitting, the skin graft became unattached. I have a small area of exposed cartildge where the skin graft was. I called my physicain and he is out the office until Tuesday. I do not have any pain or bleeding. Is it OK to wait until next week to see my physician or should I go to the emergency room. What are the health risks and long term ramifications of having exposed cartlidge in nasal cavity.
