Radiation therapy on vocal cords

Had successful radiation therapy on vocal cords. Finished in late August. Still hoarse and it varies as the day goes on. Doctor says it could take a year to really heal so that I know my voice quality.
Wondered if anyone had radiation on vocal cords and can give me some advice or recommendation of something that might help relieve some of the hoarseness. I was told to try speech therapy but it may be to soon. A small bit of alcohol, wine, mouthwash, etc. seems to help.
Thanks
