MMM and NNNs rock!!!!! Good luck to you and work hard for your voice! Also switch to the GERD diet so no acid reflux comes up (normally your vocal cords help protect but 1 isnt working anymore) Acid reflux compounds the problems.
If you read my old posts you will see I did voice overs, and speak professionally. Voice overs are no longer an option but my voice sounds normal again and breathing and choking a non-issue.
I was very fearful of losing job and supporting family had me incredibly motivated.
My speech therapist I worked 1 on 1 with gave me 14 pages of exercises to do daily but when I found the therapist from Yale hospital who encouraged me to do M and N s it was a break thru!
Please find an ENT to do the gel injection. It is an immediate relief, yes you cannot speak for 3 days but afterwards woohoo! speak breathe and it makes the vocal exercising easier.
Use a straw to drink with your chin tucked down so you do not aspirate liquids
and drink room temp liquids anything cold tends to give you mucus.
Many many meaningful mending mornings! (use that one!)
