I had bladder surgery on 3/4/16. I was intubated during this procedure and since then I have had a cough, compromised breathing assisted with an inhaler and currently my voice strength seems to be getting weaker. I chocked this , initially, to seasonal allergies, but now I am beginning to wonder if my vocal cords where scratched/irritated by this intubation. What do you think? Deborah.

Thank you for your question.

Can you please let me know if you have been to an ENT doctor to have your vocal cords examined or no?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Please let me know.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
