Voice Problem Support

I am about to have another Botox treatment under general anaesthetic (my fourth).  The Botox lasts about 5 months and my voice returns to almost normal for that time.  Unfortunately Botox wears off and has to be repeated.  Anyone else with similar experience?

Hi, I have Bilateral vocal fold sulcus. Last year I had saline injection on my right vocal fold. I noticed a slight improvement with my voice, however this didn't last as long as 5 months. It did wear off. Since then I when back to see my doctor who has suggested that I try the injection again but have them on both sides this time, but he did say that this treatment is not a permanent fix,

I've tried hyalauronic acid injections but these too wear off...  Have you tried speech therapy combined with good reflux medication (particularly Gaviscon Advance)?   Who operated on you?  Admittedly mine is a laryngeal granuloma plus scarring so we are a bit different but I imagine keeping the vocal folds as pliable as possible is good for sulcus (therefore good vocal exercises coupled with good vocal hygiene and reflux control may help?)
