Cricoid Chondrosarcoma

Hi Deb and @jeffk , my surgery was a tracheal resection for cricoid chondrosarcoma, Stage 1 and 2, at University Hospitals in Cleveland. It all happened so fast that I didn't do any research about best hospitals, so I was very fortunate to have an amazing surgeon (Dr. N. Scott Howard) and surgical team. Eight day hospital stay; trach removed two weeks after surgery. I can manage a soft whisper in a quiet room. Working with a speech pathologist to get off the dysphagia diet. My next surgery is in mid-March to reposition my vocal chord and hopefully get my voice back. Hoping for a nice alto singing voice. Thank you again and enjoy your day!
