Had my evaluation from new speech thrapist and now know what happens when you are all 1st dx and referred to speech. DO IT, there is no guareentee that what happened to me @ 12yrs clean won't happen to anyone, but much less likely if you are ahead of it. I would have been, but the technology or connection from rad to swallowing wasn't an issue past treatment.
So I am standing at the foot of the tallest, steepest mountain in the universe and I must start climbing, and with all of you and God with me, I will make progress in the right direction I just know it. So guys and gals, when set backs hit you at any point never forget the fighting spirit that we were born with which is why we survive, if some of us survive shorter that's just because God wants us back.
So I am doing all the exercises you are with 12yrs of hardening and scar down with me, I will have another swallow study on 3/20 to see if progress from Deec. Ad if not baseline for new exercise program. I will be starting Vitalstem therapy and starting to have neck messages by occupational therapist to try to losen the muscles in my neck so they can work again. So just like all of you, allbe it different, I am battling too!
I am Irish and Scottish and American we were breed to FIGHT!
God Bless you Friends,
