Sinus surgery and voice change
thomasmm posted:
I had sinus surgery a few weeks to remove nasal polyps. When the nasal packing came out, I noticed that my voice had changed and I had a deeper cavern/chamber like voice. The doctor tells me that this happens quite a bit and that my voice should go back to normal. Has anybody else experienced this and if so how long did it take for you to feel like your voice was normal again?

That sounds pretty normal. The sound produced by the vocal folds is pretty much the same for everyone, men and women. What makes voices sound differently is the structure of one's sinuses. Since your sinus cavities were cleared of obstructions, it makes since that your voice sounds a little different.
