Got 'em again, and I'm starting to get concerned. I'll undergo x-ray to search for polyps. The last time this happened, I had to give up singing in bands and remain completely silent for six weeks -- try that some time! Anyone else going through this? What are my chances of recovering lost range and vocal strength? If steroids are recommended to heal scarred tissue, what factors should I consider? If surgery is advised, what will this do to my voice? Must I stop singing entirely? Or will I sound like Tom Waits, or an aging Sinatra?
