I'm so sorry the botillium injection didn't work. Do keep us informed what the doctor suggests. What symptoms are back? I recall your reason for having the second procedure was to regain control of your vocal chords.
The chrico muscle thickening causes lactic acid to secrete and from there on my glands in my neck gets swollen and I have a permanent sore throat. Even itchy chest pains and swollen epiglottis that makes it hard to eat. The voice problem is the least of my concern.
The botillium injection only lasts for 3 months and then you have to go again and eventually only the Myotomy will really solve the problem, but I am not even considering it.
Hi....so sorry ....and I hope u get positive results with this next injection.....
Did ur Dr suggest what they feel may have caused this?
Again the reason I ask is bcuz my friend that has a similar issue had an over exposure to carbon monoxide...not enuff to sicken her, but enuff to cause this, she worked in a bank with a parking space below the offices...and the fumes leaked into the offices over time and caused this.
I have a complicated history with GERD and this could be the cause as I've had PH impedance study done in 2010 and that was abnormal and tests indicated hypotensive LES and UES. Possibly a motor disorder?
It is very frustrating, as I am sure your friend has told you? not something that can cause cancer or anything serious, but it effects they way you talk, eat and ultimately feel. I wake up with a sore throat in the mornings, during the day it gets worse and by bed time I have te rely on sleeping medication to get me through the night!
How old is your friend? is she considering to go for frequent injections or is surgery an option?
