Can you say Medialization laryngoplasty with arytenoid adduction? I can.

Last March I lost my voice, we figured to a bout of laryngitis. That turned out to be thyroid cancer that had pushed against the nerve that controls my left vocal cord. Eventually I had the thyroid removed, cancer blasted, but they also had to remove the nerve. That left me with no voice.

I just got home moments ago from the long procedure listed above. By the way, that's a fancy way of saying they sewed my dead vocal cord closed and implanted Gor-Tex to hold it there.,

I have swelling. I have soreness. But dammit, I have a voice
