The verdict on swimming is still out

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Well, I had a great time in the pool yesterday swimming my laps. But 6 hours later I became hoarse and developed a sore throat. I had these symptoms for about 5 days after the surgery on my vocal cord/trachea , but have not had any problems for 3 weeks. I didn't even have problems yesterday until 6 hours after I got home from the pool. My DH thinks the chlorine irritated the surgery site, or it could be the force and speed of breathing in the pool, or a combination of both. I just know that I'm not happy.

    I think more then likely it is a combo of both, maybe you should find another exercise until you have completely healed. Good luck
