Hi XXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

It is much more probable to be an infection. I would not be concerned about something like a blood clot, after 6 weeks from the operation.

Do you have any other symptoms like runny nose, sinus congestion, cough or body aches?

I am looking forward to your answer.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.

Hi do you think saw throughts can be caused by stress. It has been a very stressfull time what with my opperation and recovery. I am having reflexology done to me and also counselling. Is there anything else that you would recomend for stress relife?

Hi XXXXXX

Thanks for your reply.

Saw throught is very possible under stress, even if the stress doesn't directly cause it, because a persons stress can cause a decline in the immune system and therefore it does not produce the necessary blood cells that fight off infection.

Reflexology and counseling are smart solutions for stress relief, but of course there are a lot of other solution, such as move your body, laugh, mindfulness, tai chi, yoga, take a warm bath, aromatherapy, meditation, express yourself creatively, listen to music, gentle massage or being in nature.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
