Well My daughter was diagnosted with hpylori yrs ago and treated she was also told to go to a ENT they put her to sleep and put a tube down her nose and also did another test where they found a polyp in her throat on her vocal cords  , they told me it was nothing to worry about but i know it's more to it, Her voice is so hoarse that she doesn't and has never sound normal , and mind you the lymph nodes are still there . What should I do?

Go back and ask questions of them ,make notes of all you want to ask, ask to see an ENT specialist again and insist they look into it, do not be fudged off with nothing . If you demand answers they will look into her problem.
