Hi Jeff, I’ve been back for checks weekly, so they change out the trach at my visits. It seems I’ve had a very similar experience to you.
Yes, one vocal cord is paralyzed, so my voice has been compromised for some time. But some voice is better than no voice at all.
My surgery was on April 4. I’ve also had a big neck brace that holds my head in a flexed position with chin down since my trachea was rotated to limit stress on the surgical area, but that comes off in a few days.
Do you need any additional procedures at this point? You must be about 6 months post surgery. Do you feel you’ve recovered completely yet?
Thank you for your continued messages and support! I really appreciate it!
