Why Am I Hoarse After Pneumonia

Quite a shock - never smoked -  allergy prone but few colds - ended up in hospital with double pneumonia and because I did not lay down due to problem with breathing ended up with pulmonary embolisms in both lungs. Dr said my lungs are clear - the pneumonia cleared up pretty fast - my voice - tho not all the time - (especially after coffee)
is hoarse - Dr thought it had to do with sinus drips in back of mouth - It has been 20 degrees
I am on coumadin now - I went back to work in a very stressful job - at my own pace - in warm office - almost afraid to go back to old office where there is a heating problem.
