Thank you for your question.During anesthesia the cough reflex is suppressed due to anesthetic agents therefore you can be rest assured that you will not cough.So I would not worry about that.This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.Therefore, I would appreciate a rating, by clicking on one of the rating options stars) at your end, when you are done asking.Kindest regards
