Clearing throat

After I eat is normally when I notice the problem I am having. It wasn't until after I had a tonsilectomy that I even began to notice. As soon as I finish eating I feel a film type substance at the back of my throat and it makes me have the urge to clear my throat and cough as well. It has became quite annoying and unsolved. I have allergies, but I take sudafed and according to other related forums the medicine should take care of the post nasal drip. I have an appointment in about two weeks so maybe I will find something out. Let me know what you think!
