Horrible Cough

This is my second question in like 5 minutes, forgive me. About a week after my lap surgery, I developed a horrible cough. I have been seen a few times in the 3 months that I've had it. No one can figure out what is wrong with me. Had anyone experienced anything like this? I know I now have an immune system disease but I'm in the dark about what that really means. Could this cough be endo relates or is it taking me a long time to get better cause if my immune system? It is a very violent cough that wakes me at night and leaves me with sore ribs. So far prescription cough surpressents, antibiotics and an inhaler have given me no relief.

Hi

Have you been thoroughly tested for stomach issues (stomanch bugs etc) or lung problems?

Sometimes the cough is a sign for these. I know a woman that she had that persistent cough especially at nights and after many check ups they did gastroscopy and found stomach bug. With the right medication she was fine. xx

I emailed my doc today updating her on new symptoms. I will suggest some stomach tests if she does not. Thanks for the feedback!
