damage from cough?

I had a bad respiratory virus my second week post-op, with some asthma complications. Have been coughing hard, and a lot.
I have a lot of abdomen pain now, particularly around incision. Does anyone know if coughing can cause damage? Or is it only muscle soreness?

Cough meds don't help, as the coughing is mostly from my asthma, and am on the most asthma meds I can be on.

damage from cough?

Hi Kay,

I'm so sorry to hear you are suffering with the cough. Have you been hurting ever since the coughing started during your second week? Your pain shouldn't be getting worse.
Coughing does cause muscle soreness like we have all experienced when we have a bad cold, but 2 weeks post op you still have a lot that is healing.
If you haven't seen your dr, I suggest you call and let him know what is happening and just have this checked. I think it is possible you could have pulled something loose or it could just be muscle pain, but your dr needs to be the one to tell you it is ok or not.
Do you ever use a nebulizer for your asthma? Just wondering it it would help with the coughing. My DGS has asthma and the breathing treatments are sometimes the only thing that will stop his coughing.
Please let us know how you are.

's, Rita

damage from cough?

are you on pregnazone pill (steroids).
There is a cough medication that contains codine it is i believe the only cough medicine that will actually stop the cough for night.
however it is important to cough during the day or you could develop pnemonia from the secreations setteling in the lower lung.

I too am asthmatic. are you on a ventalator or just the pump.
I have a asthma machine for at home use, it costs 120.00 CND funds. cheeper in the USA im shure.
and it is amazing how much better a treatment of ventolin works when it is inhaled this way. Also the saline solution that the ventolin is mixed with really helps relieve congestion.

good luck.

I have been coughing and im worried about causing damage. ill post that question and see if anyone can help with that.

take care

I am on Advair 500, singulair, and a nebulizer which i use DuoNeb with. I use it every 4 hours. It does open me up enough that I can cough up the secretions, but I seem to be producing fluids constantly.

Maybe my asthma doc is the one I should see first. He wants to avoid putting me on an oral steroid permanently, but maybe I need something to get me through this.

Hi Ladies,

I am much further out than you are but I caught the office bug when I returned to work after 8 weeks. I was coughing really hard even though I had the cough medicine with codeine. My doctor told me I could still do damage to myself at that late date.

He suggested I support my belly with a pillow when I coughed or to wear some type of support panties. I did both and seem to be okay at 3 months.

Just some input. Take care of yourselves and hope you feel better soon!
