Been reading about hoarseness after total thyroidectomy so basically even with the best surgeon you can have mild hoarseness or voice issues after?

Not really: hoarseness associated with a total thyroidectomy is usually related to either injury to or inflammation around the recurrent laryngeal nerve. It can be up to 10% risk of either temporary or permanent nerve damage. All the literature suggests that the most important factor in deciding a surgeon is volume. I only send my patients to high volume thyroid surgeons. ...Read more

Watermelon(feels)went down wind pipe. Voice hoarse, chest slightly heavy, coughing. Does any food cause pneumonia that enter lungs? Worried.

Aspiration: Usually, when we choke, we don't actually let the food into the lungs. On rare occasion, it can happen though. Concerning symptoms include continuing cough, fevers and chest pains. Food in the lungs is always bad news. Seek the care of a hospital/center that can evaluate you for this. Aspiration pneumonia is a VERY SERIOUS matter. ...Read more

Is a flexible or rigid laryngoscope best (& must it have camera?) to assess LPR with lowered, fatigued, hoarse voice & throat & speaking pain ?

Is a flexible or rigid laryngoscope best  (&  must it have  camera?)  to assess  LPR  with lowered, fatigued, hoarse voice & throat & speaking  pain ?

Rigid is best: Rigid video stroboscopy is the best exam for a laryngeal examination. The high end flexible, distal chip scopes (kaypentax) give excellent images and are better tolerated than a rigid exam because they are done through the nose and not through the mouth (more gag). If you are asking these types of questions, you probably should see an ENT who specializes in voice - a laryngologist. ...Read more

I am wheezing, have a hoarse voice and thick mucus in my throat. Throughout the day, I find myself constantly having to clear my throat the past few days. I also know it's not pollen/ allergies. Any thoughts as to what this most likely is? -Thanks

Not allergies?: I'm wondering what leads you to say it isn't allergies. It sounds consistent with allergies, but could be from something you are chronically exposed to (i.e. Indoor allergies). Depending on how long it's been going on, it could be a cold or bronchitis as well. If it persists you should definitely see your doctor. ...Read more
