Ahhhhchoooo, sniff sniff....my 17 year old came home with a cold and shared.
Maybe someone out there has had this happen during recovery? What worked for you?
My feeble attempts to combat the razor bladed throat has been secretes, (which taste disgusting but work), sleep in elevated head position, massive layers of clothes. I do feel better as day goes and then it all sets in again at night. Of course my stitches in the front hurt when cough first started, but as long as I curl down a bit, or put a lil pressure there when coughing I feel okay. My back swelling more than normal...probably because I don't feel like laying on an ice pack when I feel so achy and run down.
His cold lasted 5-7 days and he never ran fever. So far, knock on wood, no fever for me either!
He took Advil cold and sinus or Tylenol cold and sinus for relief. I'm thinking neither are good for me, especially the ibuprofen. I'm going to call doctor when they open this morn obviously. Just reaching out to spine universe for any remedies that helped you.
