Can my LOUD voice recover?

Hello, i am a 21 year old girl, and i recently had non-hodgkin's lymphoma in my chest area..
The docter suspects it has affected my vocal cord's nerve.. The thing is, normal speaking, at a normal volume, is quite easy.. Not completely but it's ok. But when i want to raise my voice, ( and since im young and i like to go out this is quite often ) it just sounds horrible and im ashamed of it. It sounds really high and scratchy.. And most of the time i cant even overcome the noise. My vocal cord is still moving just not completely.. Doctors told me that's a positive thing because that means the nerve still knows what to do.. Well my question is.. If i consider taking the vocal cord injection, will that make my shout/scream voice (high and scratchy voice) get better? So when i want to talk loud, in noisy area's , it will sound beter/normal?
I really wanted to go out and have fun after my disease, but i really need my loud voice sometimes :(
Thank you.
