I had a TT and Parathyroidectomy three months ago for Metastatic Papillary Thyroid Cancer. 77 lymph nodes removed (22 were malignant) followed by RAI and then sustained Bilateral Pulmonary Embolism. Now I can't sing. Surgeon said tumor was in voice box and fused to recurrent Laryngeal nerve. He shaved off as much as he couldm he couldn't get it out. I nearly lose my voice after I talk awhile. I'm frustrated that I'm back to work and it hurts to talk and I get a very deep smokers voice but I don't smoke. Can anyone relate?
