There is really nothing anyone on a forum can do for you when your budgie is choking. :(
Having her in the steam should help to open her respiratory system so that was good thinking on your part!

How is Cutie doing now?

Please talk to your vet and discuss what to do in these type emergency situations so you don't panic if/when they happen.

I hope Cutie is doing better - let us know!

she vomited twice, and still occasionally makes choking sneezing type of noises, but she did manage to eat a little bit although she did vomit some pellets out. She is sleeping now and the vet said she should be fine within 24 hours. i just hope it didnt go into her lungs as i gave her the medicine doxx-sol very fast while my sister held her. But it lasted the whole day! and the vet said if she has any more difficulty in breathing i might have to go the emergency vets as today was sunday and tomm is bank holiday.

Sounds like she may have aspirated the meds, meaning that they went down the trachea and into the lungs rather than going down the esophagus. Hope she is doing better now.

Hi, so she is still making choking noises today but she is eating and her nose is no longer runny. Do you think I need to take her to vet? because today is bank holiday. What happens if it goes in her lungs?

If a foreign substance gets into the lungs it can cause an infection that can lead to pneumonia. The Doxx-Sol is a from of doxycyline, which is an antibiotic so that may help to ward off an infection but if she was my bird I would want the vet to check her out after the choking episode.

Sounds like your bird is going to be all right. Good. That was a scary post about her choking.

she makes gurgling noises and opens her beak wide as if to get air. she makes coughing noises and after talking to the vet he said they cant do anything if it has gone in her lungs. what should i do i feel helpless cutie's voice has also changed i feel as if it is more serious then it seems plus what if she gets penuemonia from it or something else. She is also sleeping or getting tired more than usual.

this is all my fault i should have never given her the medicine. Plus when i called the emergency on sat to talk to my vet he said he would be there on sun if cutie needed medical help when i called on sun since her choking still did not go he didn't even call back but only left message with the emergency that it is probably from the medication without even listening to me i appreciate it was bank holiday but then why commit to say you will do something when you don't care. I am trying to record what cutie is doing to see if there is something serious or not. Can a vet really not do anything if there is aspiration of meds I really cant believe the amount of ignorance this is even after spending more than 600.

cutie is doing something like this but she tries to vomit but nothing comes up however yesterday she did vomit some pellets.

The bird in the video is trying to vomit, it looks as if he feels there might be something stuck and is trying to bring it up.
Cutie has been on a lot of meds over the last few months have you been giving them directly into her mouth or have they been meds that go in the water? Just trying to get a sense of whether it was the actual medicine itself that caused the recent reaction or if it was the way it was administered. For a bird that has aspirated sometimes oxygen can be given if needed.
