Bronchitis treated with antibiotics. Cough, phlegm still present. Gall bladder surgery scheduled. Medical help required?

I had bronchitis the first of January and was given an antibioticand cough syrup . Since I was still coughing and had a slight yellow color to the phlegm and was scheduled for gallbladder surgery Feb 4th, my doctor put on a second round of antibiotics before my surgery. Anyway, I had surgery Feb 4th of this year. I went for my post-op check up and was cleared. But I am still coughing a lot and coughing up phlegm but it is clear thick mucous. Should I go back to my doctor?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have to see the doctor again
Infection might have cleared - but the inflammation could have triggered asthma and so on.
Examination / X-ray chest and sinuses / Spirometry (Lung Function test) will clarify

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
