When they can speak, it may make no sense. There are some videos of this to compare to- see frontal seizure on youtube for example. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please see a doctor: Any time an injury of the neck occurs, it can be a serious event. You may have fractured a portion of your cervical spine (which would explain the immediate pain) which can then produce a blood collection in front of the spine and cause pressure on your esophagus or trachea. You need an xray to start. Please see a local doctor for a thorough exam of your neck. ...Read more

Most people have no voice problems-though there known risks to every surgical procedure. The risk of a recurrent laryngeal nerve injury is about 1%. That would result in paralysis of a vocal cord, and some hoarseness. ...Read more
I'm a wk/5 days post op thyroid remove, I have no voice. there no damage to the nerves tho. How long will it take to get my voice back?
Nerve damage?: I'm very concerned about your statement that there is no nerve damage. One of the major risks of thyroid surgery is injury to the recurrent laryngeal nerve, which is the nerve to your voice box. 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
