Hi I am new to this forum. I have been suffering with breathlessness, hoarseness and general malaise and apathy for over 12 months, went to GP about 8 months ago sent for chest x-ray - all clear. Saw ENT registrar in April who said symptoms were side effects after a chest infection and that I had formed a habit of breathing loudly !!! I was given 6 month follow up appt which occurred 2 weeks ago. Saw consultant at same clinic who arranged urgent MRI scan - had this , then biopsy at ultrasound. Now less than 2 weeks later have been listed to have TT on Sunday. Going back to see surgeon tomorrow for results of biopsy, pre op and vocal cord assessment. All this has happened so quickly and whilst I am glad that something is being done to help me, I am very worried that something nasty has been discovered. Any advice anyone can give me would be welcomed. My family are also worried as things seem to have moved so fast. I am pretty much keeping focussed but do worry about he dreaded C and the implications of living with it. Thank you in advance for any help.
