I need advice. My child 8 mounths old. Her diagnosis gastroesofagus reflux. Now she has a hoarse voice, voimiting. We use ranitidin. What foods I can give?
Reflux: Thicken her foods, never over feed, offer small more frequent feeds, do not feed her lying down. Have her eat more solids. It generally improves once babies have the ability to sit alone.

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?
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

Other than allergies, what else can cause me to have a hoarse voice for an hour? (sounding like I had phlegm in my throat, but can't clear it)
Went to an ENT a year ago and had my throat and vocal cords looked at. I constantly have a hoarse voice still. Worried. Do I need to go back again?

What does it mean when you have a sharp pain on the left side of your throat? It's a sore throat and I have a hoarse voice
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
Voice rest: If you a professional voice user (teacher or singer), voice rest for several days or a high dose of oral steroids may help. If the voice disorder lasts for more than 3 weeks, I would strongly advise you seeing a laryngologist to make a proper diagnosis. Most inflammations of the vocal folds are virus and it takes 7-10 days to resolve. There is not much you can do to alter the inflammation. ...Read more

In over 45 years of ENT practice, I have never been asked the question of how to develop a hoarse voice. Every patient with a hoarse voice wants to get a normal sounding voice. So I can not and will not answer this question unless you specifically tell me why you want an ABNORMAL voice. ...Read more
It depends: There is no simple answer to this one without knowing the cause. If it is acute, a week or two, voice rest and liquids will likely result in improvement.
