My first question would be what else did the scope show? Was there normal tone in the vocal folds? Were they bowed at all? How did they vibrate on strobe exam? Did they fatigue with repetitive activity. The answer to these questions would help to determine if this is age related. Also, if there is bowing and/or loss of tone in the muscles, there are procedures that can help with that. Obvioulsy, there are a few varibables here, but that's whay think just reading your post.
Typically, a rattle is caused by excess phlegm. The phlegm makes it harder for the vocal folds to vibrate smoothly so that you don't a clear tone. Regarding the left side of your throat, it could be tonsils (possibly chronic infection), it could be reflux (which can also contribute to a rattle), or there could be something there. If the sensation is persistent, I'd recommend someone having a look just to be sure.
My sincere apologies. I had a wedding in Michigan after a meeting in Atlanta. When I returned to Chicago, I was getting ready for the Midwest Voice Conference we had last week. All of that is to explain why I just now saw your comment posted.
Glad to know you as well. I'm sure you've have an interesting transition from teaching to performing.
