Hi,Krystyna Mcknight,
Thanks for query,
The fatigue you feel is due to anemia and may be due to have not having full diet due to new denture.
For cough you go for blood CBC to find out the cause,if any infection go for antibiotic course and cough syrup.
For anemia you are rightly taking Iron tab.
Take some nulti vitamin supplements.
ok and bye.

ENT Specialist Dr. Puneet Maheshwari's  Response

there is no relation between the tooth extraction and generalized weakness, you might be suffering from anaemia or there is problem in your diet.

1- start taking nutrient rich diet.
2- CAP vitamin n minerals once a day.
3- iron and calcium supplimentation.
4-Get your GPB( general blood picture done).

You will be all rite.

General & Family Physician Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale's  Response
The fatigue &weakness you have may be due to
either insufficient intake after denture or indigestion due to inadequate chewing.after denture one has to change mode of eating.Please try to adjest properly.You have to put small bits of food in between molars in both the jaws & chew it slowly &sufficiently before you swallow.
The present weakness ofcourse is correctly supplimented by iron .Please add an enzyme preparation like Vitazyme along with it.

Your cough needs investigations like TLC ,DLC ,Hb% 7x ray chest thereafter if necessary.Tilthen you can take Allovera cough syrup.
Wishing you a fast recovery-
