For those who suffer from the same voice disorder, we would like you to think twice before you choose vocal surgery over a non-surgical approach and treatment. There are a lot of consequences which could be experienced with surgical interference.
We had numerous clients with various voice disorders who came to us after the surgery was performed - and some of them hardly could speak, let alone sing…
Please see the aforementioned email below:
"Hi. In 2013, I had an operation on my vocal cords ( bleeding polyp ) and I feel that it made my voice a lot worse. If I do a performance I am hoarse for two weeks or more.
I have lost the melody in my voice and my "throat" hurts constantly. I've been back to the Drs several times and they keep saying my vocal cords look fine, so I've given up. If I'm out with my friends I feel anti-social as I can't talk because my voice gets hoarse very quickly and it hurts. It also feels extremely tired and like a weight is on it. Then I feel like I do not have enough breath/oxygen to finish a sentence.
When they did the operation the Drs said they've tested it and it was nothing to worry about. I am, however, devastated that I can't sing anymore or like I used to.
I live in the U.K. I miss singing and I get very embarrassed when people remember me for my beautiful voice, but you can see the disappointed look on their faces when I sing now. I have to shout through an entire song which I know is not helping.
Thank you. Looking forward to hearing from you,
