            the surgon that i am going to is the same one that took out my thyroid 4 years ago.both my endo and ocologist recommeded going to him because he is the best in this field and one of the most experienced with it.  little neverous because he said could effect my voice .. but said if did could do things in office to help it or other things to boost up voice.
