Suggest treatment to cure chest congestion

I just had my left thyroid gland removed yesterday. I was not sick prior to surgery but After the surgery I have developed phlem. I feel like I have an elephant sitting on my chest. It hurts to cough. How can I get rid of it without aggravating my throat.
