“I said, ‘Doctor is that normal for her voice?’ He said, ‘Oh ya. It will go away in a couple of days,'” said Richard Alamia.
But it didn’t go away, so Lisa went to see a neurologist.
“Very unusual. I can’t think of a reason the jaw surgery would cause it. I went back and looked at the operative report to see if there were any complications from surgery but there weren’t any,” said Dr. Toby Yaltho of Houston Methodist Hospital Sugar Land.
After tests, Dr. Yaltho was able to determine Lisa had a rare neurological disorder where someone’s voice can alter or change after a surgery or traumatic event.
