    Cilia??

    I remember when I quit smoking during my 2nd pregnancy, I had thee worst cough, and it lasted for ages, the doctor gave me codeine cough medicine, it was so bad. I thought for sure I'd be coughing out some of the junk from my lungs when I quit, but I never did, no cough whatsoever. Does this mean the cilia is dead and never going to come back? (smoked for 22 years)

    Hi Zeethan, no the cilia are not dead. Sometimes it takes a while for them to "come to." How long has it been since you quit?

    Thanks for answering, it's been a bit over 3 months since I quit. I overworry every thing.

    Consider yourself lucky, maybe there wasn't alot down there... My cilia became overactive while recovering from a tonsillectomy. I thought I would lose my mind. I still have to take tylenol with codeine occasionally for the itchy throat cough almost a month later. I'm a respiratory therapist & not everyone's body reacts the same way. The cilia don't die, but they do become less active the older we get, that could be the difference in the two "quits". As long as something comes up occasionally when you cough, your cilia is/are (not sure of the plural there) working fine. Good luck!
