I live in India. I was diagnosed with Reinke's Edema and I am a jazz singer. The doctors sent me to a vocal coach to learn vocal exercises. This is supposed to help me regain the notes I have lost on the octave. I an 57, had a hysterectomy 12 years ago, stopped smoking 8 years ago and am willing to do anything to be able to sing :( I don't see any improvement with vocal trills and other exercises.
