I have a nagging persistent cough. Just had open heart surgery on June 2nd. Heart is fine. Cough won't go away.

Expert:  Dr. C. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, I'm going to opt out because there are other doctors on-line who are more qualified to help you for that particular problem. It won't be long before you get the correct doctor to answer. I will give him the heads-up.
