Thankfully, I don’t have very bad coughing unless it’s allergy season, (May and September for me), with awful post nasal drip. Then, infrequently, I cough so bad it makes me gag! I started wearing bladder leakage pads also 2 years ago for a couple of months. But, then found out it wasn’t my bladder after all. At my yearly GYN appointment when I told my Dr about it, he didn’t think it was urine so he did a biopsy and surprise, I had endometrial cancer. Thank God it was very early stage! I had surgery and radiation and am now 2 years cancer free. AND I no longer wear a bladder pad. So I guess my cough and throat clearing isn’t that bad after all, but, it’s still annoying sometimes. I’m happy, and sad, there are others that understand this crazy journey. 🙏🏻 for all.
