Post Surgery Will I Be Able To Cough Again?

Posted by Gemd, on Sat Jun 15, 2019 9:35 pm

I have allergies and asthma so I cough a lot but 3 days post OP for barbie butt and it's a pain as bad as breaking a bone...a cough is that  painful but in my butt. When can I cough again without nearly vomiting from the pain?

Try placing a pillow against your abdomen.

The pain there does get better and they probably removed some stomach muscle for your barbie butt! They did on me. The pillow works really well and it improves quickly. Although I have never really had a deep cough since. Just little ones. Irritating! When I asked the Plastic Surgeon if I will ever be able to cough again they said, “That’s a good question” lol I can!
