I would like to share information -(pre-op/post op)
regarding my up-coming surgery to remove a growth on
my vocal cord. Is there anyone on this forum who has
had this surgery? My doctor assures me it is quite
common, and that I will have a sore throat for about a week, that's all..but he has to give me a general anesthetic because of the gag reflex. Nanuk
