Not talk. I don't talk much anyway and it wouldn't bother me.
Been there done that, when I had my thyroid removed in the 70's they clipped my vocal cords couldn't talk for 6 weeks. That was tough for me. I'm always talking
Ha ! Since I have Meniere's disease, I can't hardly hear out of one ear now and it's going bi-lateral and I'm losing my hearing in the right so I can't hear much anyway. Might as well not talk either.
If I get a note pad and a sharpie, I'd be fine not talking for a week.
