Plz,Give the reason with treatment.
How to recover it.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Thyroid Cancer Support Group.

I had a bad cough with a lot of phlegm for quite awhile after surgery. I got relief with the old fashioned remedies (hot tea with honey), warm liquids ( soup), reducing the amount of milk, etc. The issue lasted quite awhile but seemed to get better with all the hot liquids. Good luck!


Hi @anna125, I'm wondering if you tried any of the helpful tips from @koh? How are you doing? How's the cough?
