Flu symptoms, mucus in throat, unable to spit it out. Cure?

Hi, I am at the end of a flu i have had for about two weeks, and have had something lodged in my throat all day. I think it is mucus as a previous flu i had ended up with me spitting out a ball of mucus. The problem is that it will not come out, I have tried spitting and swallowing , honey and lemon tea and gargling salty water. What else can I do to get it out??

I recommend you to drink plenty of water avoid oily foods and soft drinks .you should do gargles with salt and mouth wash, steam will be helpful , take some green tea I recommend to have a proper clinical examination.
