Sore Throat Post Op

Fee1970

Has anyone experienced a sore throat after surgery. I am 4 days post op and my throat is extremely sore...I did have a cold going into surgery, but I did not have sore throat. Other than that, I feel fine. My incisions are healing nicely, minimal gas. Any thoughts?

I had a head cold going into surgery, and an extremely sore throat for about a week after. Don't know if it was coinsidence or not. Either way, it was gone in a week.

During surgery they place a tube down (intubation) your throat to maintain an airway while your under for surgery. It's common for ones throat to be sore afterwards. My throat was a little sore a couple days, but it finally went away.

It's most likely irritation from the intubation (putting the tube down your throat). When you drink something cold, can you feel it go all the way down through your chest? I've had that happen after a few surgeries. Weird feeling! The soreness goes away after a few days but the cold feeling can stay a while.

at Jen 1381, no not really. but drinking something cold really helped. I think it was more of an infection from the cold...nothing helped, when i say nothing, i mean nothing....i had to tough it out. the antibiotics are working slowly, it is not as bad, but still bad...I had an ear ache to boot. thanks for the advice and all the comments...
