Is this a "perk" from the radiation?

After finishing chemo, I received radiation to my neck and chest for HD back in 2003. Since my radiation treatment, whenever I get a cold-I seem to lose my voice. Has anyone else experienced this side effect from radiation?

I still have that happen to me as well. I had 28 days of radiation to the neck and chest as well and I lose my voice very easily now.

I frequently have problems with my throat, including contracting bronchitis and losing my voice - if we happen to go somewhere where it is loud and I need to raise my voice to talk, I quit talking as it hurts and I usually loose my voice. (btw, I finished radiation in 04)
