The only other thing of note that happened was that, as I leant forwards for some reason, I started choking. It felt as if there was a big lump of phlegm caught at the back of my mouth (I know, lovely!) but I couldn't cough it up. I mentioned this to one of the nurses but given that throat problems are very common after being intubated for surgery it wasn't a major concern for her or me. I mostly felt bad for having made such a revolting noise on the ward!
