I do not think that the anaphylactic reaction is the cause for the sensation in your chest. If you were intubated during your operation, it is possible that the intubation irritated your throat and thus causing this sensation. This will subside spontaneously. It is imperative that you consult your doctor about this problem or you can consult an emergency facility for an examination.
