Wow!!! I've never heard of this kind of severe outcome. I'm so sorry for all your suffering.
Oh my gosh! So sorry to hear this.Will be having surgery on 11/13/18. Never regained my voice back, both vocal cords were paralyzed from having my thyroid removed. I can barely breathe because it's so narrow and I got tired of the surgeon telling me to give it time, so I saw a new doctor on Halloween and he asked who did my surgery and said 'he's not retired?' I'm livid and feel betrayed. I was hospitalized in February this year and been to the ER twice in the last 6 months. I was told I can either have a permanent trach and I said NO! so on Tuesday he's going to cut one of my vocal cords and hopefully I can breathe again. I thought I had problems before my surgery, but I've got more now. I've had a hard time drinking/eating/pill taking as well. Choking sucks!
