I had wrote in a while back that my vocal cord on the right side was paralyzed after partial thyroid removal on that side. I was devastated as it turned out to be cancer, and I was not a candidate for surgery on the left side.. until the time of vocal cord recovery.
Well its been 4 months since the date of my surgery, and my vocal cord is now working! It has been a slow and trying time for me.. very scary.
Now I am looking onwards to a second surgery.. to complete the removal of thyroid.
I just wanted to post this, in case anyone else has this rare complexity to know this happened to me.. and there is some hope.
I used slippery elm.. which is a powdered tree bark.. helps aid in swallowing.. and helps heal. I slowly started trying to speak more and louder but careful not to exhaust my voice.
Today, the vocal cord is still sore if I talk too much.. throught the day, but at least its working and no longer paralyzed.
Praying, and patience.. and hope.. its not easy.. but possible.
