Need help/information

Dad had cancer of the epiglottis 2 years ago. It has recurred, but just above the larnyx.

They are going to do a neck and head scan and then it looks like the only option in laryngectomy.

He doesn't want the laryngectomy. He's 80 years old and has struggled with eating and is just tired of it.

Can anyone provide some insight as to what we're facing if nothing is done - I'm pretty depressed right now and am envisioning a long and slow decline and painful death.

Thanks -

Marsha
