The laryngoscopy treatment is widely used by doctors for detecting the actual problems in a person's throat or more precisely, larynx. There are two types of direct laryngoscopy, flexible and rigid. The flexible laryngoscopy procedure is done by inserting the laryngoscope through the nose. Though it may sound awkward, but there is nothing to be afraid of as you would be still able to breathe and the treatment would not cause any pain or discomfort. Sometimes a spray anaesthetic is used and that may taste bitter and it may also prompt you to feel as if your throat is swollen. But in the case of direct rigid laryngoscopy, you may not be able to feel anything as you will be given general anaesthesia before the treatment. Your otolaryngologist may ask to undergo the laryngoscopy treatment if you are feeling in any discomfort while talking or swallowing foods and drinks. It takes about half an hour to complete the procedure and you feel nauseated lightly after waking up. This is absolutely normal and your expert would keep you under close observation for about 4 to 5 hours after the completion of the treatment to check whether the problem is resolved and that you are able to eat or talk without any problems. General muscle aches, soreness of throat, fatigue is common after the treatment and there is nothing to be afraid of. You may also sound hoarse the day the treatment is executed and your doctor would be able to help you to overcome these discomforts.
