Depends on the etiol: If you have dificulty in swallowing, talking and hoarsenss, and these symptoms were not there before your surgery, you need to get in touch with your surgeon immediately. If they were there before then you need a detailed evaluatin of your throat. Postop nausea is not uncommon after general anesthesia, however, if the symptoms are not going away you need further workup.
