Voice Specialists from TMV,
What is your experience in treatment and its effectiveness?
Consider the following case study as an example. Singer gets a node on 1 fold that is mild to moderate.
It has been suggested that surgery could be necessary, but by no means confirmed.
Would you say that surgery to remove 1 vocal nodule would be permanently detrimental to the artist? How much perm. damage can occur and are their cases you know of when a nodule was removed via surgery and the result was outstanding.
What other solutions are there? Rest? Medicine to reduce swelling and antibiotics?
At what point would a singer have to choose laser removal over the other less invasive therapies?
Thanks for your professional and critical feedback... I hope to get a lot of experienced feedback on this. I think it could become an important resource for many singers and I would enjoy getting your input.
