I had Bronchitis for the first time in my life (66 years) about 2 months ago. Was put on meds and was better in about 10 days. While the Bronchitis was active, I had a very bad cough, and I coughed most of the time. After I was better I continued to have a hacking cough for about 3 more weeks. During the time I was sick I was hoarse most of the time. After about 4 weeks, I was totally recovered except for the fact that I get hoarse very easily. It's usually worse at night, but sometime it's during the day. Is it possible that I coughed so much that I damaged my vocal cords. Would there be anything wrong with a wait and see attitude or is it something that needs to be checked out soon? Thanks for any advice on this subject. Thanks, suru
