I am 4 days post op and get these uncontrollable coughing spells.
They hurt so BAD!!! Ive taken some otc cough med and it doesnt seem to be helping.Im so afraid of ripping something inside or poping a staple out. Any suggestions? I done have a regular doctor to call for a perscription or some thing. Ive tried taking robitussin max.str. so far no luck.If it werent for the cough or gas Id be pain free. Havent had pain med since I left the hospital. I do take motrin once a day.

JB - Call your gyn. for're basically still under his/her care until after recovery. Is the cough syrup you're taking an "expectorant" or a "suppressant"??? There's sooo many kinds out now.

I agree with Dot, call and see if you can get something called in from your surgeon. I had a very irratated throat from the tub being in and I had very bad tickling in my throat that was making me cough. I did use and over the counter after checking with the doctor to see if it was alright. I used a cough suppresant since I was just trying to quiet the tickle in my throat. Take care. Keep a tummy pillow close by to hold against you when you cough. I even took mine to the bathroom, you just never know when those coughs are going to come.
