I have had vocal paralysis over four months now from a fist fight from strikes to my throat. One doctor says it will take a year and another told me some people never recover. Will I eventually recover because I cannot speak well and it is making everything harder? Voice is raspy and breathy and takes a great effort for me. Will it eventually heal? I am a type 1 diabetic and taking medications for the same.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. You are having unilateral vocal cord palsy. As sufficient time had passed but need not worry. You should consult a good speech therapist and try a full course of speech therapy. You may get relief but if no satisfactory result comes then finally, a phonosurgeon may do thyroplasty. Thyroplasty usually gives a good result.
