      I borrowed a glass straw from a family member who is a speach pathologist. You immerse it an inch or so under water and sing/make sounds and the resistance from the water works your vocal chords back into shape basically. It helped my voice a lot.

      I had. TT 2 years ago. My voice still gets hoarse at times, especially when I am tired. I also feel like there is a lump when I swallow. I recently went for a cat scan to be sure there wasn't anything there to worry about. I told the doctor that if it was normal.....i could live with the rest.... No problem. It was negative and so I just know that after my throidectomy......i have a new raspy voice when I'm tired and the different feeling when I swallow is"normal" for me.

      I've recently had a complete removal of my thyroids.
      My throat on the inside has pain...is that normal.
      There are moments when I can't swallow certain foods
