Last time I was in decent on plane, terrible pain in forehead and had blood,clots in throat next morning, am I safe to fly again? Is it sinusitis?

Pressure change: What you experienced was likely due to change in cabin pressure. The symptoms need not recur. Try to stay well hydrated during flight as the air in the plane is dry. Avoid alcohol.

Last time I was descending on plane, terrible pain in forehead and had blood/clots in throat next morning, am I safe to fly again? Is it sinusitis?

Probably: This is consistent with sinusitis which may have been subacute or chronic in your case. A cat scan of your paranasal sinuses would be able to diagnose these and,if present,could be cleared with proper antibiotic treatment. If you have suggestive symptoms, see your physician or otolaryngologist.

I had a tonsillectomy and adenoids removed 2 weeks ago had a blood clot in throat and had to get surgery to remove it is my singing voice gone forever?

Unlikely: The surgery to remove the blood clot after tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy sounds like you had a post tonsillectomy bleed. This can happen sometimes. Removing the clot and more importantly controlling the bleeding was likely your surgeons goal. Once you heal, you should have no issues with your voice.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to know that there is a blood clot in your throat. If you feel a lump in your throat, you should see your doctor who may be able to examine you as an in-person evaluation is needed.

Blood clots: It is possible that there is some bleeding from the inflammation from the strep, or even some bleeding from the nose can drip down and cause blood clots. Unless it is prolonged or persistent; it probably goes with the strep.

Tickle in neck throat blood clot?

Not likely: A tickle in your neck or throat is not a symptom of a blood clot. It is much more likely to be coming from an allergy or post nasal drainage of mucous.

Good for him!: You should still keep your follow up appointment with ENT. Should there be any other concerns before then, you need to call and be seen much sooner. Surgeries are not without complications, so you certainly don't want to miss it.

Many sources: This indicates that the blood comes from somewhere in or around the mouth. For example, could you have bitten the inner lining of your mouth or the tongue? It is also possible that this may be from a upper nosebleed. If this continues, you should at least ask your dentist to check it out for you.

Possible nosebleed?: You didn't mention age or if you smoke but this sounds to be most likely blood running down the back of your throat from a posterior nosebleed and you coughed some up. If it persists or recurs I recommend seeing your doctor.

On my second day of a extracted tooth (back molar) I need to cough, I have back up mucus in my throat. Is it safe?  afraid blood clot will fall out.

Safe to cough: A normally formed blood clot will not fall out due to coughing. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
