HI I have gone through your mail and as you said you have lost your voice with soreness and later on your voice recover but not fully as was before,now you have yellow sputum. I would like to tell you that you should go for these basic investigations-(1) culture and sensitivity of throat swab / sputum, (2) C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses (3) X-Ray chest P.A.view, and you should contact your E.N.T.specialist for examination of throat to rule out local cause at larynx and co-relation of these with investigations to find out the final diagnosis and treatment.thanks
