Thank you x

Yes it's just the tube. Your throat should be feeling much better in about 3 days. Drink plenty chilled water or juice that'll really help.

I had my op 4 weeks ago and my throat was rough afterwards too xx

Thank you xx

Hey, I bought like soothers to help my sore throat. It’s just from the tube but it lasted about a few days for me xx

Thank you, yeah I’ve been using them too x

No worries, it’s a horrible feeling like it was making me feel sick as my uvula was inflamed and catching the back of my throat 😫 x

Yeah that’s how mine is, I can actually feel if sitting on the back of my tongue x

Hey, yeah- I found the throat pain more uncomfortable than the incision site... It may be because when I woke up after mine I was screaming and shouting and lashing out (sounds funny now...) - A few days and it will be fine :) xx
