Voice rest (i.e., talk as little as possible) is helpful in the first two weeks after a laryngoscopy. This allows the vocal folds to heal more quickly. When speaking, do not whisper as this puts more strain on the vocal folds than attempting to use a normal voice.

There are no dietary restrictions following a laryngoscopy.

Driving is permitted as long as the patient is not taking any prescription pain.

Abstain from tobacco use. In addition, avoid exposure to cigarette, pipe and cigar smoke.

Follow-up with Dr. Bankaci as scheduled, or please call the office to make an appointment.

If there are any further questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact Dr. Bankaci's office at 724-547-4575 or 724-832-9688.
