Elongated Uvula After Surgery
My daughter had surgery on Tuesday and now has an elongated uvula causing her distress. What can be done to help her and when will it return to normal?

Do not be alarmed if there is not trouble breathing. Have her drink cold water several times, take Benadryl and Motrin as directed. Likely resolve in 1-2 days. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
