Re: swallowing problem following thyroidectomy
Boy, you've been through so much. What a frightening ordeal.
There have been many posts here by people who have lost their voices, and most of them seem to get it back on it's own, though it can take months, and sometimes comes back very gradually.
In your case, you can search through old threads, I do recall some old threads about people with swallowing issues.
I'm sure your doctor knows what he's talking about, you've had a lot of shifting around in your neck, and I'm sure there's a great deal of swelling. It might come back so gradually, you might not even notice the improvement initially,
I only had a teeny tiny bit of difficulty in a few weeks after surgery, and I used it as an excuse to eat ice cream (I find lots of great excuses for that!)
I hope you get better soon.
