I am a teacher of 18 yrs. and have just had my 4th surgery on my vocal cords. I have carcincoma in stiu on both vocal cords. Since this last surgrey I can hardly talk-it's been a little over a month now. My vocal cords are still swollen. My dr thinks my voice will come back as the swelling goes down-as to how much-it is just a wait and see thing. I was just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this. I am shaking just writing this.....I am full of fear and worry -I guess mostly because of the unknown-
Thanks so much-

Welcome to CSN

I know the fear of having cancer and from your post you say this is your fourth time dealing with it. My daughter in-law is a school teacher so I know how much you need to use you voice. If you don’t mind I would like to add you to my prayer list.

Take care
