  • Sometimes it takes a few weeks for that irritation to resolve after being intubated, especially after a long procedure.

    Cold fluids and throat lozenges are helpful, but for the most part it is just a function of time...it should get better.

    Hope that helps, but call your doctor if it doesn't begin to get better in the next week or so....good luck!!
