I had an anterior diskectomy and artificial disk replacement of my C3-C4, C4-C5 vertebrae about 5 weeks ago. Since the surgery I have had a incredibly hard time speaking. I have a difficult time talking on the phone and only do so when necessary, and only speak when someone is visiting me at home, as it hurts to project my voice.
My question is has anyone experience similar issues of losing their voice, and if so how long did it take until you were able to speak comfortable. I have made some progress, but only if I keep Popsicles constantly going, and drink alot of fluids
Thanks for your time,
