General Surgeon 's  Response
Thanks for your query and understanding of the problem.

The possible treatment is already underway. Please request your ENT Surgeon to continue treatment for 2 more weeks. Take a full rest for speech- no talks at all.
Take a slate and a pencil - this works.
Surgery to be considered only after a test after 2 more weeks.
Yes this is a very small surgery and has the best results in the expert hands. Get this operated only if required and by an expert in the field.
