Hi all,long time no see/post, hope everyone is ok.I'm thinking of having a thyroplasty operation at long last (I was offered this 5 years ago when diagnosed but had had my fill of doctors and hospitals by then so couldn't face it).Just wondering if anyone else has had this and how you found it? questions I have are: will it improve my voice? is it painful? tips for the recovery period? and finally, any particular surgeons/hospitals you'd recommend?one thing that terrifies me is that it's done…See More

Hello Quiet Voice
Welcome to the social support site, nice to see you on here. Are you going to the Lary day in July?
Best wishes, Maggie

Hi Q V
Likewise I am learning to use this network..it was all a mystery, but gradually I am getting to grips with it.If I can do it so can you...I have more years than you under my belt!! Haven't done any on line chats, thats too scary.Hope your voice is not too bad at mo.I am struggling, had 4 and a half good days since 16th April. Been off work all this term and I am retiring at the end of term...strange way to finish my career.Been to ENT all they said was "your vocal folds don't meet", didn't refer for voice therapy or any other solutions.At the last lary meeting spoke to Jacob Lieberman and he told me I could get a second referral to Lewisham where he and Sara work so that is what my lovely G.P has done.Shame you will miss July meeting but if there is anything useful for you I will email you some details.Love Maggie

HI there......great to see you on here QV. seems a long time since I saw you last :-) Are you going to the next Lary meeting? I hope to be there but won't know for another two weeks yet whether I'll be able to come down, but I'm hopeful. How are you? I hope you are well and look forward to chatting sometime fi you are online at the same time. Take care, best wishes Irene x

Hi again, should have said thanks for asking me to be your fwend.......I feel loved :-))

Hi QV, Glad you are OK, hope the holiday was enjoyable, but I guess that must seem a long way away now.
Like Maggie said it is a shame you cannot make the July meeting, I am hoping to get there, and yes, you will be missed. x
At 20:51 on July 15, 2010, Margaret Morriss said…
Hi Q V
Hope you had a lovely holiday and that your voice is holding up.Sara gave me the details of who to ask to be referred to so if you want to go that way I can give you the name of the consultant.It would be lovely if you could get to the meeting and go to your brothers party. I went on to a party after the last meeting, got changed in the car at Cockfosters tube station!
Love Maggie

Hi QV
Thank you for your lovely message. I was very disappointed that I wasn't able to get to the meeting I was really looking forward to seeing all my lovely Lary friends. How are you? I had been wondering if you were ok as I hadn't seen you at the last couple of meetings. I hope you are well and I'm sorry to have missed seeing you on Saturday. Take care and look forward to seeing you at the next meeting. Love Irene x

Hello QV
Lovely to hear from you, sorry to have missed the meeting but my dad has been in hospital for 6 weeks with a very serious illness. We have been visiting daily taking my mum as she cannot drive, so it wasn't fair on her to go to London.We are hoping that my dad is now making some progress.My voice is good!! I have retired from teaching although very busy what with hospitals, grand children and our new puppy. Hope to see you in the near future and hope your voice is as strong as it could be.
Love Maggie x
