So I had an endoscopy yesterday and I woke up with a swollen Uvula. Any suggestions how to remedy this? Its really causing a lot of discomfort. Im constantly having gag-reflex because it got long as well and touching the back of my tongue.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

My uvula didn't become elongated from an endoscopy, but it did begin to drag on my tongue and cause a gag reflex. I went to an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist who numbed it with a shot of lidocaine and lasered it off. I'm glad I had it removed, for it probably cut down on my snoring too.........
