I am scared out of my mind that this is a permanent condition. I have not been able to speak for 2 weeks now. The ENT doctor reports my vocal cords are paralyzed, but it's too soon to know if it's a permanent condition. My thyroid surgery report looks good and doesn't indicate
any complications. I was totally blindsided by this and didn't realize thyroid surgery could possibly leave me voiceless. My surgeon only mentioned temporary or permanent hoarseness. Please share your experiences and provide hope, as I am a nervous wreck.
