Please if somebody can help - vocal cords problem since flew to japan and got laryngitis bad?

Viral or physical: The term vocal fold (chord) problem is very non-specific. If you are hoarse from a long flight, there are at least 3 possibilities. You may have talked too much (voice abuse), you may have contacted a viral infection from another passenger (laryngitis) or the physical environment may cause dryness of the throat and larynx. Time and fluids or occasionally oral steroids will resolve your problem. ...Read more

How does esophyx compare to nissen fundoplication in terms of efficacy and safety? I have bad GERD and laryngitis. Which should I do?

Esophyx is endoscopic without scars but is newer, less studied& not indicated for big hiatal hernia.
Laparoscopic nissen fundoplication is the gold standard but it is a surgery/more expensive and makes it difficult to heave or burp.
They are both operator dependent & patient selection is key. ...Read more
