I had an ablation while under general anaesthetic yesterday and now my uvula seems to be swollen and stretched. Every time I try to talk it moves onto the back of my tongue and makes me feel sick. Its an awful feeling. It might be because if the tube they put in for the operation. Its not difficult to breath and only difficult to swallow when it slips onto the back of my tongue.
Has anyone got any advise on how to get it back to normal or how long it will take because its driving me crazy.
