Hi its me again, I had a TT about 6 weeks ago and surgeon has confirmed left side of vocal cords are paralysed I can cope with the breathy voice and occasional choking on a drink but I wake up in the night virtually unable to breath in, it freaks me out and I really panic, the first time it happened my husband called paramedics and I was taken into hospital, this was 3 weeks after the op. I did not know about the vocal cords then and surgeon said it was probably a virus, it happened again the next night but not so bad. I thought it had gone away but has happened again today, I can only think that it is a plug of mucus that gets lodged there, but it takes a long while to get the airway working properly again, nearly all day, and now I am scared to go to sleep. If anyone has had a similar experience I would love to hear from you please.
