Post-Op Dry Throat / Cough

Since coming home from the castle, I get an annoying dry "catch" in my throat that causes awful coughing spells. I try to contain it so it almost sounds like I'm laughing to myself when I'm really in distress. It happens most often when I lay down. I drink tons of water, have herbal throat drops & ice chips always ready. I go to sleep with the throat lozenges scattered near my pillow so I can grab one when I wake up with a coughing fit. This isn't allergy or cold related. I'm thinking it's related to the surgery breathing tubes. Any other ideas would be appreciated - don't want to pop anything after all that's been done. Thanks so much for any similar experiences or ideas!

Post-Op Dry Throat / Cough

Obviously, check with your doctor, but it sounds very much like you're suffering with post-intubation symptoms. Some people have problems and some don't. I was told to expect a sore throat or cough, but I was fine. It all depended on how easily the tube was inserted, how it lay, what it rubbed against, etc ...

It should fade pretty quickly but have a word with your doctor if you're at all concerned.
