I had a left sided styloidectomy yesterday… The surgery was a success, but in recovery I stopped breathing and ended up in the ICU on a ventilator…I’m off the vent now, and now having such mad throat pain from surgery… How long before drinking water doesn’t make me cry?

Sorry to hear you are having such a rough time. :(

I wish I knew the answer to your question.

Praying things get better for you and a speedy recovery. :)

Oh, I am sorry! I have a rough time with general anesthesia and just know I can't do this as out-patient.

Can you use Cepecol lozenges or spray? I had to use them after my anterior neck fusion- the throat pain of having the trachea and esophagus pulled aside was very bad.

So Sorry. Prayers that you feel better soon.

Hope you have relief soon! There must be something to soothe your pain. Glad your surgery was a success!
