I had arthroscopic knee surgery a week ago and had general anesthesia. Before being wheeled into recovery, I had a laryngospasm. I needed to be intubated and my throat was very irriated for several days after and I developed a cough. It has now been a week and my throat is still sore, and at times it is hard for me to get a good, deep breath. Is this normal after having a laryngospasm? If it continues for another week, I do plan to see my doctor.
