For months I've wanted my trache removed. I HATE IT! so much! I got it this past June when cancer on my larynx was restricting my breathing. Went through chemo/rad and by November 2013 got a clean pet scan. Thank goodness, time to focus on healing. But here it is February and still having a difficult time talking and breathing and continue to have a trache.
Today I had a cat scan done at the ENT. It appears my airway is about the size of a McDonald's straw and should be 3X that. My ENT believes this is causec by scar tissue in my airway. No one in the city can perform this surgery of removing it so now I have to find a way to travel hours away to go to a specialist that can do it. Scar tissue could have been caused by the radiation.
Pretty bummed out. Any experiece with this?
