sore throat

I was wondering if anyone could tell me after having Thyroid surgery ( I had it all removed) When will the sore throat stop. It hasn't been 3 weeks yet but somedays my throat is just fine and then boom a couple days later it is sore again. Maybe I talk to much somedays? if you ask my husband I am sure he will agree lol <IMG SRC=""> Just was wondering if anyone has any answers. I was told that healing take about 6 to 7 weeks... Thanks Marcia
P.S. ArtfulD I did respond to the messiage below.

Re: sore throat

Hang in there, Marcia. The sore throat varies with how much we need to speak throughout the day, and how irritated it was post-surgery. Keep drinking liquids, and try honey or honey-based lozenges (I think Ricola makes some, and there's also honey candy...). Slippery Elm (or slippery elm lozenges) are also good, as is Licorice, but these herbs have other effects on the body so don't take them more than 3-4 times a day.
