lost voice

My husband has lost his voice since the open heart/LVAD surgery on Feb. 9th, about two weeks ago. Has anyone had this same problem? He will be going to a specialist mid March to see what's wrong. But there are some advantages to having a husband who whispers! I was concerned if he needed help and couldn't yell for anyone, so we got some Xmas bells out of the attic, just in case.

I lost my voice from prolonged intubation which resulted in a partially paralyzed right vocal cord .good news is that it is coming back! I had a trachea put in and have also had to deal with problems swallowing hard chewy and solid foods. My name is Sam King and I have had my lvad for almost 2 years
