    As with any surgeries, keeping the wound clean is important. This is surgery mostly around your nasal cavity and won't affect your voice. Pain will most likely be around your sinus cavities and incisions but will subside as you heal. Your operation room 'team' may inform you of the procedure and/or as always, it's best to speak to your doctor.

    My husband had a similar surgery and it did not change his speaking voice. He commented that he could breathe a little easier and his snoring was not quite as loud as it used to be.

    The pain wasn't too bad at all. The thing that hurt the most was his throat from the tube that they put in during surgery. I would recommend using some chloraseptic spray to numb your throat.
