Well my six month check up was all clean and good to go. NED.
However I am having some trouble with my laryngectomee as my TEP [vioce prosthies] leaks when I cough. They think it is ok, and no need to worry. But in the next breath, they want to put a custom gasket in to stop the leaking. Well that didn't work and I had to drive [215 miles] back and get that washer removed ASAP. That made for a long day with only three hours sleep and a four hour drive each way, but I got it removed and feel much better. Still leaks, "But I should be ok, It's only when I cough". With COPD that is about upwards to 50 times in a day.
Sorry, just needed to vent a little.
