Hi there!

Difficulty in swallowing is common after a laryngoscopy. This may occur due to associated inflammation or due to muscle spasm and is likely to settle with time. This may also be aggravated by the presence of the ulcer. Meanwhile I would suggest taking a semi-solid diet to avoid excessive irritation. You may consult your doctor for specific management after the reports become available.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
