Hello,

I don’t think the cough is due to bronchoscopy procedure. It is as a result of post nasal drip syndrome the cause of the secretions. No worries she will be fine soon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jolanda Nikolla, Pulmonologist
