Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection after surgery

throat

Dear Dr. My friend has been diagnosed with a staph infection in her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. She had gallbladder surgery a week ago and now she can't swallow anything, not even liquid. How serious is this? She has lost 20 pounds in one week.
Mom did not want the full surgery so they only removed the area of cancer that was starting to grow together and shut the intestine they removed 10 nodes and found 14 out of 15 had cancer. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> she is not doing well. We have had problems with urine output, swollen tummy, now yeast infection in her MOUTH, she talks about things that did not happen and says off the wall stuff. She threw up dried blood the next day.
I went to my PCP who said it was a sinus infection but this sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> happened the day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> oral so I think it's from that. He insists it's not & gave me some medicine for the sinus infection. I have been taking the medicine (Flonase) for a month now but still have a sore throat on and off. He never swabbed my throat either. What could this be? The sore throat is there one day and the next day it's gone. The back of my throat is really red and looks swollen.
glad you are doing well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> - make sure they are testing you for hypothyroidism to see if you need meds to replace thyroid function.
During the ablation, my heart stopped a few times and they had to bring me back with paddles. I felt great <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> was done and the EP said my pvc's were gone. The dreams started a couple of days after I got home from surgery. I woke up sweating with my hair plastered to me and then cold sweats several times a night; but I couldn't remember anything. I thought maybe an infection and would check my temp, nothing above 98.
), did the GI doc say there could be a connection between the sinus situation and stomach/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>? If you've got irritation, inflammation, infection, whatever in your sinuses, they drain down your throat and could be irritating your stomach and esophagus maybe. Sound far fetched? (When I was a kid, my smaller sibling had chronic post nasal drip that caused her to wake up barfing EVERY night from the post nasal drip. It happens.) And of course there's our old nemesis, Lyme.
I had a culture done because of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> pain and infection, it was negative. This started up a month or so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> using the drug Restasis (cyclosporine) for dry eyes. I have had cataract surgery and I'm 56 years old. The infection is only on one side of my throat. My Internal Doctor isn't familiar with Restasis. I'm going to visit my eye doctor in a few days. I'm currently on antibiotics and I'm using a nasal spray for my sinuses (from my Internal Doctor).
On top of that when I was in Washington state over the holiday I came down with a viral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> infection and had to be rushed to urgent care cus I could feel my throat swelling....well that turned into a infection. Today I called my NS who is out of the office for the week to get advice on what to do...His colleague said to get to urgent care and check the incision to make sure no injuries to that and check for Pnemonia just to be sure...
About a month ago, I had endoscopic sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, which removed a fungal infection. Since then, my nose has felt clear - in fact, it's strange how easily I'm now able to breathe through both nostrils. My problem is that I have been having severe insomnia every night since the surgery. I have difficulty falling asleep (usually takes an hour), and then wake up early, between 3 AM and 5 AM. I also have been more anxious, but it's hard to tell if that's related to the insomnia problem.
never would have thought about my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> while having gallbladder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. On a good note, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> having suffered from nausea/vomiting for nearly two months....with the removal of the gallbladder, all those symptoms are gone, and I'm having NO bad effects from not having the gallbladder.
If it's just a little it may be that your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> was scratched a bit and is getting irritated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> you eat something. In any event, I would definitely call the doctor asap to make sure it isn't something serious. Leave a message for him to call you back with the on-call service.
I have a spasm in the left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. It was really bad right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> but now the spasm seems to be calming down to only happening a couple times a day. Right after surgery I had a couple of what appeared to be panic attacks that landed me in ER in which is weird because I have never had issues with this kind of thing. I am now starting to lose my balance, my ears have a slight pain behind them and feel full. I have problems hearing as well. I am extremely worried.
I've been searching for information on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> congestion on the web, but all I can find is nasal congestion. The problem is how it affects my voice. I have to clear my throat frequently, and sometimes it just won't clear. Occasionally, I lose 80% of the volume of my voice. I just keep talking and after a few seconds it starts working again. It has no effect on the way I feel. Everything seems to be fine until I try to talk.
It is normal to have a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> even days later. Mine was actually worse a few days after surgery and i also had a straining sensation in my chest that lasted a while. I'm sure that everyone recooperates differently, however you shall consult the surgeon if it gets worse....
My husband is asthmatic and his inhaler kills certain bacteria in his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> which apparently can occasionally cause a yeast infection in his throat. Eating the yogurt also took care of his sore throats!
Finally went to doctor about it. My levels are all perfect but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> is inflamed inside and draining infection. Dr was'nt sure what caused it but also I can't talk half the time or little at all. He put me on a cordisone[sp] throat spray and also stronger antibiotics. He feels some sort of bactiral virus got in there. I am wondering, could it have been to tube durning surgery. Anyway the draining could cause even more serious problems due to build up in lungs, he said.
For the last four weeks I have had a strange sensation in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. The only way I can describe it is that it feels like I've been screaming at a concert or shouting and that tingling you get afterwards....well I got that! Two things spring to mind....I had Gonorrhea two months ago and got treatment and got cured of it. But could it still be that? They never said I had it it the throat but I've heard you can get it on there...
There was no fever. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, I expected to have more symptoms from this viral thing, and I indeed did. I never knew a person could produce so much mucous. I did not dare cough because of the incision, but somehow managed, mostly by throat clearing, which has continued with little abatement. My upper chest also continues to hurt. In addition, I feel yucky, but lord knows whether that's from the virus or the hormones which have a ways to go before they get squared away.
currently in a bad asthma escallation due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> infection, oxygen saturation level was 36% as I had been coughing for over 4 hours, pulse was 97,peak flow was 200, should I be worried. Taken at surgery on 2 successive days as emergency when doc had to treat me before others, been in daily since.
I didn't feel the major discomfort immediately <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. The awkward feeling in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> was felt upon waking up the next morning. I could barely swallow as I could feel my uvula rest on the back of my tongue and when I looked to see it was half white???? I was definately concerned and proceeded to look up what could have caused this. As time progressed........it got worse............so sore.........the pain was radiating up the back of my throat and up to my ear drums.
Diff toxins and other infection. Watch for the diarrhea. My son slept a lot when he came home eight days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>, but I assumed he was making up for lost sleep, since he was woken or disturbed in hospital every 4 hours for blood draws and vital signs. He said he just needed to sleep. (I think his longest stretch was 11 hours. However, 20 hours is excessive and will cause dehydration.
On oct 31 my son fell 2 stories off a building he was working on and broke his neck at c-5 and c-3 he is now in a halo for 3 months and still may have to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> it is removed. My question is his mouth as developed a white coating with sores on the tongue, roof of mouth and back of throat and is now coughing up some blood also very painful for him to swallow.
My urologist said I have a prolapsed bladder, he is waiting to do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> on that until <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> this next <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>. I'am discouraged thinking of going through another surgery!
Does anyone who had recent gallbladder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span> go through this? Is this normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> this type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>? Does it really take years for your body to feel normal again (no more loose bowels,etc.)? Any advice or comments greatly appreciated. I will be glad to hear the response I get back from my surgeon.
