A friend sent me an article on methods surgeons use to preserve the nerve for the vocal cords during thyroid surgery.

Thanks, Bunny. Most of the time I'm okay, but I have spells of worry and fear and it's frustrating to want to speak up, but know I probably won't have the nerve.

Ann, I don't have your problem for it is MY body and I am in charge!! I take notes and ask questions and slow them down so I can write things down and don't let them go until I'm satisfied. I still may forget things, though, or think of more afterwards sometimes. That's when I call with my concerns and either my doctor or his trusted nurse calls me back and we discuss.

Well, I guess I do meet with the docs involved and the surgeon, but it isn't like a separate day thing, as far as I know.
