847512 tn?1272567062 On top of that when I was in Washington state over the holiday I came down with a viral throat 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...
Avatar m tn My son had a septum surgery, after 7 weeks he had a fever with sinus and sore throat (Is this a matter of concern? as I doubt in the hygiene level of the hospital) frequently he has a back discharge from nose to throat (thick mucus) with headache. are there any specific advice?
Avatar m tn I am getting an infection on the left side of my throat a little next to the lingual tonsils.. I had my palatine tonsils removed about a month ago.. My lymph nodes are swelling up massively and im fatigued alot.. It feels like a scraping pain when i swallow on the left side of my throat and hurts a lot.. Is it normal to get infections like this after a tonsillectomy? I am taking the remaining penicillian i have from the tonsillectomy as well as vicodin to lower the pain..
Avatar m tn I went to my PCP who said it was a sinus infection but this sore throat happened the day after 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.
Avatar m tn Paul suggested, which is find out if you have a respiratory infection or throat infection of some kind, which might be causing the swelling. Also, he can prescribe medication to knock down that neck pain, which since you have pictures that prove cord compression, he shouldn't hesitate to provide pain meds you. I've been in a situation where I thought I was choking to death, and it was absolutely terrifying.

Avatar m tn 2 weeks after exposure I had an oral surgury and 6 weeks after exposure I had a complicated knee surgery and I was hospitalized for two weeks. I was taking 2, 10 days courses of antibiotics after each surgery. Symptoms: aside from normal flu symptoms that I assume are due to common cold, I developed mild but persistent sore throat 3 weeks after exposure which has been continious up to now. I got white tongue as well which I think is bacterial and perhaps the reason for my sore throat.
Avatar m tn After having dcr surgery there was problems with the recovery after local anaesthetic. After 6 weeks it was decided to take tube out. Unfortunately it had to be tried without local anaesthetic. Thed opthalmologist was unable to remove tube. It was released from the eyelid. I have been told to blow my nose repeatedly and hope the tube comes down..Also he said I may have swallowed it. I feel I would know if it had gone down tghe back of the throat. Has anyone any experience of this situation.

Avatar n tn prior to surgery. If so, it was unrelated to the surgery and might have been a reason to postpone the surgery. If I am mistaken and you actually developed the cough post operatively, on the very day of surgery, then there could be a relationship, not with the thyroid removal, but related to the anesthesia, presumably with intubation. And it could bear a relationship to your underlying asthma, in this case aggravated either by the viral infection or by the intubation. But that is all past.
640719 tn?1277140030 o My NB came back with no malignancy but did contain cells that were placing me at high risk. They told me I had a 20% chance of them finding cancer at the time of surgery but after surgery my surgeon felt confident the pathology will come back fine. It's been a bit stressful walking through this knowing my ultrasound wasn't given to me sooner and knowing my Grandmother was diagnosised with Graves Disease that was cancerous.
351317 tn?1204751871 A week ago I had part of my turbinates cauterized to stop the constant swelling and nasal discharge I have been having for years. After the surgery I had swelling which was expected and a little pain. The surgery hurt like hell but it was quick and I did notice I could breathe a little better when the swelling would go down.
Avatar m tn After antibiotics didnt help on the 4 day control check dr said I had an abscess in the throat that requires surgery. And also started a different antibiotics intraveneously. After the surgery and 10 days hospitalization I was released but I still had difficulty swallowing food. Doctors never give much attention to this complaint they just wantrd to treat the abscess and edemas by anti iotics.
Avatar n tn I called the doctor and he said its more then likely from the air tube being put down my throat from surgery but did change 1 of the 2 anti-biotics I am on. Well since then my throat has been getting worse, with more redness and now white spots. Did I pick up strep throat or something or could it be something else? I called the doctor back and he just said go back to the ER with no help. I cant afford to keep going back to the ER ranking up my bills.

Avatar m tn t feel the major discomfort immediately after my surgery. The awkward feeling in my throat 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.
