What is the cause of an elongated uvula after surgery?

Uvula

Uvula
Your uvula was probably irritated by the endotracheal (breathing) tube during surgery which caused it to become swollen and possibly elongated. It should go away on its own.

I had inflamed and painful tonsils only on the left side two weeks ago, also caused ear pain. I'm ok now but I've developed an elongated uvula, why?

Uvula

Uvula
Most of the time, when the uvula gets big or long, it is from swelling. Swelling of the uvula can occur with any kind of insult to the tonsils or throat, like a viral or bacterial infection, which you probably recently suffered. It could also have occurred from any kind of trauma, but you didnt mention anything. It should go down over the next several days, but could take a couple of weeks.

I snore and my uvula has become elongated, inflamed, causing discomfort swallowing.  What can I do?

Sleep Study

Discomfort
Swelling of the uvula is commonly associated with mouth breathing and sleep apnea. You should be evaluated for sleep apnea especially if you have other risks such as obesity, daytime sleepiness, a family history of sleep apnea and a large neck (greater than 17 inches in men and 16 inches in women)

Uvula is very swollen and elongated. When I wake up my mouth is painfully dry and coated in white. What is this? I also have cold symptoms and cough.

Infection possible

Cough
Could be anything from a viral cold to a strep viral infection. Could be from snoring, perhaps a breathing problem. Start w your MD/DO and have a full evaluation to determine what's wrong and what can be done to fix it.

Dr. Farhad Sigari answered:

what causes swollen uvula?

Reaction

Tissue
Other than trauma, surgical manipulation, or a mass - the things that can cause swelling are usually related to an "reaction". It could be due to certain med (ace inhibitors), due to an allergic type response, or due from a hereditary condition (c1 esterase defiency) that allows fluid to improperly fill tissue spaces
