Hello, I had my surgery about 18 months ago and from the first post-op day I had the feeling that something was in my throat or pressure pushing against my throat. I was told that it was probably due to the intubation and would go away in 3 months or so. Well, it's been 18 months and it's still there even more so than earlier and it seems to be more on the surgical side of my throat. There are time when it makes me gag for no reason. I can swallow food without choking, so that's not the issue. I just feel like I have a band around the right side of my throat all the time and it's very disconcerting to say the least.
Just wondering if anybody has had the same post-op problem I am having and if so, what have you done about it?
