Bradford Royal Infirmary air pipe insertion

Last minute change of plan before surgery last Thursday meant I had to be given a general, as opposed to local, anaesthetic. 
I've had general anaesthetic before but the anaesthetist did warn me that the air pipe might make my throat sore.
I don't know who did the actual insertion, but four days on and swallowing is agony, looks like soup for Christmas and my throat feels a third of its normal size.
That pipe must have been inserted with all the care and attention of a plumber suction plunging a khazi.
