In brief: Nerves?

Voice change after thyroid surgery is not uncommon.
You should be evaluated for any nerve damage by an ENT specialist. They may be able to improve your voice along with speech therapy.

In brief: Recurrent Laryngeal

The nerve that controls your vocal cords runs posterior to the thyroid gland and can be damaged with thyroid cancer and the operations required to remove the thyroid.
