My 5 month old just had heart surgery and was intubate for a week they took the tube out then they had to put it back in with in a couple hours. He was intubate for 4 more days.. since then he s had a lot of phlegm that just sits in the back of his throat and sometimes ends up gagging on it and throws up. And his left vocal cord is paralyzed for now. Main question is what could be causing all the phlegm? He is not sick, does not have a cold or anything.
