A 29-year-old female asked:
If i get my adenoids removed, will my voice deepen? if so, is it immediate following surgery or is it a gradual change?

Adenoids and Voice: Your adenoids are not closely associated with your vocal chords, so it should not permanently affect your voice.
You may get some post operative swelling which may make your voice a little hoarse, but that is usually temporary.
