Coughing after only 2 days?
So, yesterday (Thursday April 5) I had a tonsillectomy, the first surgery of my life. I've read a lot of these detailed threads about adult recovery, and some child recovery, but something that happened today got me a little worried.
Yesterday around 3pm, I noticed that it was getting hard to swallow water. I tried to eat some lime yogurt, which my surgeon said was good, and it coated my throat for about 5 minutes before the pain came back. Now today, I can't eat or drink hardly anything;everything tastes like vomit (tmi I know), and I've only been sick once last night.
The worst thing is, is that I have the urge to clear my throat and cough, but everyone's posts that I've read said that coughing shouldn't really happen for a few more days at least. Is this weird? I am coughing up little tiny spots of blood and a lot of yellow-white chunks.
Anyone have any advice?
