See a doctor.

See another doctor. We only have one MD here in the boards but he's not active lately.

sorry to hear...cough maybe a sign of healing so maybe you should just let it go away naturally?

i agree...actually sometimes we cough becuase our respiratory system has foreign invaders and our immune system will activate the coughing mechanism to expel the foreign invaders out in the form of phlegm etc..
So sometimes, it's good sign if we cough..it means our immune system is doing its job
You may try taking peppermint, dark plum, Ji-Lin Ginseng and crysanthemum..those are good to nourish respiratory system.

you've not really given enough information to allow anyone to help you - i recommend seeing an ENT instead of a GP.

more tests may be needed. an X-ray is not enough.
