Productive cough: Make an appointment for your child to be seen as soon as possible. He may need antibiotic treatment.

Post nasal drip: Your child may have a viral infection which typically can take 10 days to clear up. If there is a fever, problems breathing or any pain, I think he should be seen right away. Keeping him well hydrated, using nasal saline and gentle suction and a mild decongestant for children at night will help to alleviate his symptoms. If the cough lingers more than 3 weeks, he should be seen for chronic cough.

See MD, Stop Advil (ibuprofen): Sounds like you have already done enough watching and waiting. Go to your physician for an examination to check for disc injury and other problems. Over the counter analgesics, physical therapy, massage therapy, yoga and acupuncture may help. Initiall cold, then warm compresses after a day or two. If not resolving, i send my patients for x-ray, mri, and referral to ortho and/or pain clinic.

Symptoms:abdominal pain lower back pain heavy clotted bleeding after period ended light headed nausea difficulty breathing while standing.Retain water?

Not normal: Definitely needs to be evaluated by your doctor. Difficulty breathing does not really go with gynecological issues. I would start with your pcp for that then see obgyn for the rest, .

Surg. complication?: It would appear either the original process continues unabated or there is a surgical complication. I suggest you see the original surgeon (probably your ob-gyn doc).
