I am a cst/fa certified surgical technologist/ frist assistant. I have over 10 year in the operating room and have knowlage of all types of surgery. I can usually can answer most questions posed about surgery.
After surgery, my husband's voice was very raspy and just above a whisper. The dr said this would pass in a couple of days, that it was because of the breathing tube. It's been 2 weeks and his voice has still not come back. He saw a specialist today, so told him his voice might come back in 2 months, or it it could be 10 months, but that they don't consider surgery to repair vocal chords until a year after surgery. Have you ever heard of this? Thank you for your time.
I have heard of people that have had caritod bypass and have weakness in their voice. It could be caused by the breathing tube or injury to the superior larygneal nerve. That is my understanding of the causes I hope this helps you. Please feel free to ask any other questions. I sorry I don't get a lot of time to write back but I will write back as soon as I can thank you.
