I had a Laryngetomy in oct 2010 and a T.E.P implant on May 2011, I cannot seem to get it to work for me and everyone tells me to just keep trying. I've had it replaced 3 times because of leakage to my lungs.I use the HME Cassette ( heat and moisture exchanger)
Only good thing about that is it helps to keep the stoma clean. My question is , has anyone ever had the TEP removed and went back to the old pen and paper ? I still have to suction the stoma. I some times wonder if did the right thing to have the surgery. People still don't understand me. I'm only 54 I feel like i can still do as much as b-4, only everyone tells me to take it easy don't do this don't do that, like i should just sit and wait for the sky to fall.
