My son had grommets inserted yesterday. He was knocked out with a gas anaesthetic. Didn't recover all that well, and had a very 'wet' sounding cough, rattly chest, and runny nose afterwards. He slept it off for a few hours, and seemed fine afterwards so they sent him home.
Tonight the 'wet' cough and rattly breathing is back it's so bad that he sounds like a cat purring, only much much louder.
Is this a common side effect of the gas anaesthetic? Or could it indicate further problems??
Someone please help!
