There is no cause for worry.
Thank you for your query.
1. A Direct Laryngoscopy
may be done with a flexible Nasopharyngoscope or an angled rigid endoscope. This is a very simple procedure with no associated risks. A slight discomfort and gagging / retching may be felt. This is normal and of no concern. A local anesthetic
spray may be used.
2. There are many causes for hoarseness
, such as laryngitis
, vocal fold weakness, swellings, and so on. The Direct Laryngoscopy will settle the issue and there is no need for speculation.
3. Anti-reflux medication
is usually recommended for 8 to 12 weeks. Hence 2 weeks or so is still too early to comment upon.
4. You may share the images and video recording of your Laryngosocpy here for further advice.
I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
