    vocal Fold (cord) Paralysis post -op ACDF

    Hi Now 5 wks post op 2 level fusion and still horrible voice problem, went to
    ENT to ck vocal cord and one is paralized, have high breathy voice and trouble swallowing, choking. ENT says procedure available to ingect gel to vocal fold, gives it a temp boost for couple months and maybe my voice will be back by then.

    I am scared to death about loss of voice has anyone been through a diagnosed Paralysis and had this gel procedure?

    Thanks
