vocal cord paralysis
thank you for your excellent suggestions re my post-lobectomy chronic cough.  it now seems i have a paralyzed, bowed vocal cord.  i will be seeing a speech therapist next week, and i am also taking medication in case the problem is GERDS (SP?)...  but i am
concerned lest surgery may eventually be necessary.  if so, is
it DISFIGURING?  and in what way might my voice change,  and how
is a TEST FOR CANCER of a vocal cord  performed.?....(cancer is of course a  concern because my recent lobectomy was for a cancerous lesion.) i do not smoke, by the way.
......intubation (your suggestion)  is what my throat doctor suggests as a possible cause for this chronic cough, as well.

again,  my thanks for your kind and thoughtful response a few days ago.
