As many of you will know I have been waiting for my throat to be operated on for some time. At first I was on the Fast Track List to ensure it was nothing untoward. Then put on the normal list.
After a while I have now had the surgery. It was to remove a large lump and three small lumps which were all attached to my thyroid. The big lump was attached to my wind pipe and the right hand thyroid gland. It was also covering the voice box nerve which we had hoped would not be affected. Unfortunately it has been slightly damaged and my voice is currently very weak. So if you need me, it is best to either listen very carefully when I get to somewhere quiet, or message me.
I am going for a check up on the 25th July so hopefully will see what can be done about my voice then. I am hoping it will come back gradually. The main thing is the lumps have now been removed, so I dont feel like Im chocking anymore, especially when I lay down.
Im very optomistic, as always, and will do whatever is necessary to get my voice back. Its just quite frustrating at the moment. Whilst watching the World Cup, I cant cheer of course, and throwing your arms up or punching the air in excitement just doesnt do it for me!
Ill give you an update when I have one. Fingers crossed.
My voice has come back but only one vocal chord is working. Everyone has been informed that if my neck is damaged in any way then the hospital has to be careful not to damage the other vocal chord or thats it, I wont be able to speak ever again.
Had further scans and all is well. YIPPEE!!!
