last night was the first time I slept on my bed since 2 level anterior cervical procedure. Before that I slept on a recliner, so it was the first time lying flat to sleep. I fell asleep ok but woke up after a few hours with this horrible 'event' going on in my throat. I do know the person who shoved the tube down my throat had to have been a hack, because my lip was beat up and I think I had a longer period of not being able to swallow liquids. It felt like a gob of mucus in my throat. I drank some Mucinex syrup but that did nothing. After falling back asleep on the recliner I decided it is more like a 'flap' hanging down, and has continued to be an issue. Lying flat appears to have allowed whatever the bleep this is to break free. Can anyone shed some light on this? Naturally this occurred on a Friday night/Sat. morning.
