Caring for the Voice after Vocal Fold Surgery

Vocal Fold Surgery Post-op Care

Vocal Fold Surgery, at the best of times, can be a daunting experience. During the surgical procedure, we have virtually no control and we have to trust in the skills of the surgeon and theatre staff. But the moment we wake from general anaesthetic we become an active player in our post-operative recovery. So, what can we do after phonosurgery to secure the best possible outcome for ourselves and our voice? I’m glad you asked. Stick around…I’ve got some super handy tips that will have you up and singing again soon.

As surgical practices advance and develop, the need for extended periods of absolute voice rest is being reduced. Once you have been given the go-ahead to re-commence talking you enter the second stage of your recovery called relative rest.
