Questions and Answers

My 17 year old daughter has polyps on one of her vocal chords?

She goes to a performing Arts school and has sung since the age of 8. She has a very good singing teacher who has never pushed her to belt songs out and she was the one that insisted on her going to see a doctor.. The surgeon Mr Jindal examined her (camera up her nose and down her throat) and confirmed that she has polyps. He said that with vocal rest for 3 months and a diet of no citrus and as little dairy as possible and a balanced diet should see an improvement and she should be able to continue to sing. He did say that he thought it had been caused by a trauma and stress. (her boyfriend split with her in late April and she also has quite important auditions and a concert just after)

Since the diagnosis she has not sung a note and has tried to reduce her stress levels and talk less. Advice on anything else that would help in her recovery would be appreciated.

Many thanks
