Thank you all. I’m going to look into what you said. But I’m still wondering about the vocal paralysis. Would the results be different with a scope if I tried to talk with my strained voice ?

If you had a paralyzed vocal cord it would probably be very obvious when a scope is done. A paralyzed vocal cord just hangs there. There is little or no closure with the other vocal cord. Did your ENT print out pictures from your scope? If not, call and ask for them.

I can understand your concerns being without a voice or one that is very weak is worrisome.

Have you considered getting a second opinion from a doctor who specializes in vocal cord problems rather than a general ENT? You might look for a large multi-disciplinary medical center in your area like a university medical school or another large medical institution and call and see who they have on staff who specializes in vocal cord disorders. For my vocal cord problems, I traveled to Cleveland Clinic which was a 3-hour drive, but well worth it.

I'm interested in hearing about your progress. Will you post again?
