During surgery 12 months ago, my right vocal chords were damaged, and I could not swallow, and had no voice. However, with SALT help & exercises I managed to get my voice back and can now swallow most foods. However, I constantly have a mild sore throat, loose my voice on a regular basis and suffer with tonsititus regularly. ( in the last 12 months). (I have no voice today and an extreme sore throat hence this message !.) Does anyone else suffer with this and have any tips to cope with it, other than being on antibiotics most of the time from the doctors ! I would appreciate your comments.
