I was always a high soprano, I just assumed lately it was age that has made me an alto, now I'm rethinking perhaps it was the chemo, now that I look back on it.

Yes, George's voice changed. Kind of raspy, like he had to clear it when he had a cough and cold or sounded like he had a sore throat. Very common.

Take care - Tina

My voice gets kind of froggy sounding for a couple of days following chemo most of the time. It did it even more when I was on Folfox and also on Folfiri than it does it now to me (on Gemzar). It's amazing all the nasty things chemo does to us. Scary, actually. I guess I'm ok as long as I picture it doing all those same nasty things to the cancer cells!

But my voice, as I've aged, went from 2nd soprano to first alto...I sang in Up With People in high school as a 2nd soprano...then, for the reunion, I had to learn all the first alto parts....lol...there were many of my friends there that had to do the same....teehee!

GREAT telephone sexy voice, however...ROFLMAO!

Hugs, Kathi

Hi Pepe, Yes, like others have mentioned, Rick's voice got a little raspy, but also higher pitched. And, like other chemo related symptoms, it cleared up once he got off of the chemo. Take care, Cyn

We found that Jorges voice would change so what jorge would do is drink more water and as soon as he had 1 cup of water it would go back. Hugs Tina

Yes, Dick's voice can become very raspy at times. It varies as to where he is on the chemo cycle. Today, since he hasn't had chemo in 10 days his voice sounds fine.

Aloha,
Kathleen

It seems I recall reading someone said one of the chemo's can cause sinus problems. Is that correct? Or was it a weird chemo induced sleep/dream I am thinking up. LOL. If so, that could be causing sinus draining and scratchy raspy voice. Hope you're feeling ok Pepe :)

Love and hugs, Gail
