I was wondering what all the screaming of joy was coming out of West Virginia.  LOL

That's right a whole of screaming from Wv, no just very joyful, I have to limit my talking for a short while, have to press my fingers over the stoma,when I talk  but thats ok, just very thankful, have a great week-end. bjw1955

I am very happy for you. I know that when mine was taken out, I felt as though I was another step closer to getting back to feeling normal or at least to our New Normal......

My Best to You and Everyone Here

Congrats on your new self!  I only had the "tube"....and removal of that was wonderful.  The removal of a trache has to have that beat by a 1000 times!!

I had one 2 weeks in the hospital following my surgery, having it out to go home was a thrill, I can only imagine how good it must feel after having had one for 2 years. Congrats!

So good to hear BJW. I have a trach and have had 4 weeks of radiation with a lot of chemo ahead. Your success has given me a lot of hope, thank you and again, so good to hear you losing the trach.

My Radiation Doc. wanted to take out my Larynx but the chemo Doc said I have a chance without removing the Larynx. Even if I won't be able to speak at least I won't have that piece of plastic hanging out my neck, that alone would be great.
