      I guess you need to upgrade your grammer to understand what vocal cord surgery actually means.
      Get well soon Joan!

    She was not undergoing a cosmetic procedure. It was a laryngoscopy to check her vocal cords.

      Was she not the same person I saw on cnn the other day cursing out like hell? i guess that was when she lost the cord…why wont someone’s larynx give way when she constantly yells (at that age oo).. whether it is cosmetic surgery or laryngeal surgery, too much of anesthesia has its bad side effects on the human body

    At 81 any surgery is risky. If she survives she needs to just give it a rest and allow younger people take over.
