Customer Question

I am experiencing excessive saliva creation. It's like Im hungry and there is good food in front of me BUT that is not the case and it has continued ever since I had a small lunch at 1PM.
Tuesday I had an abdominal aorta aneurysm repair with graft as well as an umbilical hernia repair (a 14" long incision of my belly). I was released from the hospital at noon yesterday. I am experiecing no major pain and I am only taking ibuprofirn. What is causing all the saliva and how do I stop it?
