I was looking for a diagnostic forum category but didn't see one. MEDIASTINOSCOPY Looking for information on WHY vocal cord issues happen. Has any one had a doctor or ENT explain this cause? To me, the procedure should not be near my vocal cords so what is the cause? I am well aware, that I was intubated, traditional ET tube (not LMA or etc). Being a paramedic who intubates patients, I know if they pull the tube without deflating the cuff or put in a tube too large with an over inflated cuff, that can cause damage to the vocal cords. To note: I've been giving it time to see if that heals all. I have not seen my surgeon to inquire yet. I will be seeing him soon as we head toward the VAT surgery to remove the LRL. I've been trying to search and read but post all in with other things so I haven't found these answer or much on the topic. I did NOT have radiation.
