Throat problems after surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Throat problems after surgery

throat

Could the throat problems be related to the surgery? What could be possible reasons for throat problems if surgically related? I know you will have to only speculate, since you have not see me or my files and I plan to follow up with my neuro. I would just like to be a little more informed.
, in past 6 months have developed throat problrms and seem to be getting worse, I have a lot of phlem or mucus inm the throat, mostly after eating, hard caughing or clearing of the throat will expell some of it, always some left, can never get it all, some times caugh up small white pieces of something, looks & feels like small cottage cheese curds with a terrible odor, I'm horse a lot, I'm a singer and have dificulty with my voice cracking, my Dr. thinks it is alergys but various meds.
At my post-op visit I was told that I may have problems with diarrhea immediately after the surgery but I was not told that it would last for any length of time. I still suffer from occasional bouts of nausea. I just try to watch what I eat. All in all, I'm glad I had the surgery because the pain associated with gall stones is something I never want to feel again.
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. After surgery 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 was also wondering if anyone that had total thyroid surgery has had the feeling of something stuck in throat after and food just not tasting the same. Not sure if it is from tt surgery or having my tonsils out at the same time. I just hope that I get this figured out since I am taking my son to a child endo in march since he is overweight and the drs are conserned since I have a thyroid issue and it runs in my family hope my son doesn't have any issues he is so young.
After a couple of months post surgery she was able to breath and eat on her own and the doctor decide that it was time to remove her feeding tube and close the incision in her neck. Three days after the surgery (to close the incision) she started having difficulty breathing. Her doctor had to do an emergency tracheotomy because there was an inflammation (not cancerous) in her throat. It’s been 6 months and the inflammation is still there.
Anyway I know people have breathing problems after thyroid surgery I just wanted someone else to tell me I will be able to run 3miles again and not sound like a pig .. When I take a deep breath. Its been 3mths since the 2nd surgery and I am still at 50% in one of my vocal cords and the other one is not moving. Any feed back would be nice..
hi spiker i have severe copd and was rushed into hospital with pneumonia, they had to cut a hole in my throat and feed a breathing tube into it, i survived that operation no problems,so i am lying there with chronic copd a tempory trachea and serious pneumonia when i had terrible abdominal pains, it was discovered i had a strangulated hernia, which required a immediate operation or i would be dead in a couple of hours, the surgion said it was the biggest hernia tear he had ever come
Hello, This is my first posting. Still not sure of the terminology here. I had my left thyroid removed on Jan 29. It took about 2 hours. Thankfully, the pathologist on hand stated that it appeared benign, so I still have my right thyroid that will hopefully carry on with all the functioning since I no longer have the left one in place.
Has anyone experienced depression, anxiety or ptsd after being diagnosed with medical problems and having surgery? Normally I'm not an anxious type of person but this is driving me bonkers. I have been so stressed from the moment I found out from my pcp that something was wrong - I knew the way I was feeling wasn't normal for me. In a period of a month, I was in my pcp's office - specialist, testing etc & surgery, so it was very quick finding out.
It is the only thing that works for inflammation for me so I have to take it for short times for dental and back problems. No my throat isn't sore. So most of the time it doesn't bother me too much.
About 7 months after surgery several cysts were identified in the throat which are in contact with the epiglottis. Since surgery, she also has had a lot of sinus drainage into the throat. A skin allergy test showed that she is allergic to a wide range of allergens and a blood test showed a high IgE level. At times her adenoidal tissues have been very inflamed. To further complicate things, a sinus culture 1 to 2 months after surgery showed positive for fungus and then a mycobacteria M.
I had alot of mucous in my throat too and it went away after awhile.Do they know what the shortness of breath is from? If you have a sore throat and the choking difficulty drinking ,eating soft foods ect. it could be from that stupid breathing tube!!!!! I had more TROUBLE from that than the surgery!! My throat was sore as hell for 4 days that is what I needed the pain meds for two days for!! HAHA! I had lobectomy on 9/8/09 with possible second surgery - look at uh-oh nodule in Italy! post.
One side of his thropharyngeus muscle was opened up through surgery to allow him to breathe easier, as his breathing was very laboured. The vet told us that he may have problems with phlegm collecting in his throat. He throws up a lot of phlegm at times and tries to cough it out. Is there something we can give him over the counter that can help him do this without taking him to the vet again?
I was wondering how long your hospital stay was, did you have a tube in your nose when you woke up, how was the pain level, did you have to have a special diet before the surgery or do a bowel cleanse? What were you able to eat after the surgery? Did you have to take any kind of pain pills afterwards? I am freaked out about it as I have heard so many people have problems afterwards.
she is 60 years old. ever since the surgery, she has had numerous problems and i really would appreciate someone's help in figuring out a solution to the problem as she is suffering quite a bit on a daily basis.
never would have thought about my throat while having gallbladder surgery. On a good note, after 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 throat was scratched a bit and is getting irritated after 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.
He did blood work and said I was fine. After surgery is when all my problems started. I had a constant tingling feeling in the back of my head for months, I had problems swallowing to the point that I did not eat for a week and a half. I would just slowly drink water.
I had minimal bleeding, and the surgery went well. I had been having some trouble breathing before surgery; a fungal infection was blocking my nasal passages. I am wondering if this might be related to the anesthesia I got.
The surgery was not directly related to your throat, but to drainage that comes down the back of your throat. It is hard to understand why you would experience the type of symptoms you are experiencing without looking into your throat. I would suggest speaking with your Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor if this symptom does not continue to improve.
You also did not mention how long after the surgery it has been. Sometimes a pre-existing problem has not been addressed or eliminated at the time of the original surgery. Sometimes it is a result of a bleed or small hematoma. The reaction to fillers and subsequent scarring is also an issue. I cannot give you a specific recommendation based on lack of information, but advise you work with your physician in resolving your problems.
I was fortunate enough to not have thyroid cancer, though they were quite surprised I did not based upon all the pre-surgery labs and tests. After the surgery, there will be some time spent trying to get your husband’s thyroid replacement medication just right. During the period they are trying to get the meds right, he needs to remain patient. Every time they adjust the dosage, it takes about 6 weeks for the body to adjust.
I know my surgeon mentioned something about this also, does it sound normal for the first year after surgery?
and i never had any pain in my throat after surgery from the tube being down. it's almost as if it's muscular but not muscular. i don't know how else to describe it.
