AB  - Purpose: To verify the occurrence of sensory symptoms in thyroidectomy patients
      pre- and post-operatively. Methods: This is a prospective, quantitative,
      descriptive study conducted with a sample of twelve patients undergoing
      thyroidectomy. The participants underwent visual laryngeal examination and
      responded to the Upper Aerodigestive Symptoms (UADS) and Vocal Tract Discomfort
      Scale (VTDS) questionnaires before and after the surgery. Results: There was
      higher occurrence of vocal fatigue, hoarseness, pharyngeal bolus, dry throat, and
      throat clearing preoperatively, whereas higher occurrence of hoarseness, vocal
      fatigue, cough, and pharyngeal bolus was observed postoperatively for the UADS.
      Regarding the VTDS sensory symptoms, higher frequency and severity of throat
      dryness were observed preoperatively, whereas more frequent tickling throat and
      more severe irritable and sore throat and lump in the throat were observed
      postoperatively. There was reduction in the choke symptom and in the frequency
      and severity of the throat dryness symptom pre- and post-operatively. With
      respect to the frequency and severity of vocal tract discomfort sensory symptoms,
      reduction in throat dryness was observed at both assessment times. Conclusion:
      The patients presented sensory symptoms of upper aerodigestive tract and vocal
      tract discomfort pre- and post-operatively characterized by self-reference of
      hoarseness, vocal fatigue, pharyngeal bolus, and cough, as well as dry, sore, and
      irritable throat. Reduction in the sensory symptom of choke and in the frequency 
      and severity of throat dryness was self-reported by thyroidectomy patients
