Nerve damage?: I'm very concerned about your statement that there is no nerve damage.

Even if the nerve appears to be intact or is intact, it could still be weak causing a breathy voice. Your lack of a voice could also be from swelling just from the breathing tube. It could take weeks. ...Read more
