BS: Kendall's operation

31 Oct 04 - 10:04 PM (#1312658)
Subject: BS: Kendall's operation
From: jacqui.c

Kendall goes into hospital in Boston on Tuesday morning for the laser operation to remove the cancer from his vocal chord. If all goes well it will be an overnight stay and we'll be back home on Wednesday. If they can't access the area by going down his throat it will mean a temporary tracheotomy and four to five day stay in hospital.

We would appreciate good thoughts from our friends on the Mudcat that this finally does the job and maybe gives him back a singing voice.

We'll keep you posted on progress.

The best of luck to both of you--but don't let him slip into that hospital gown until AFTER he votes!

(Kendall has given himself the best inoculation of good luck and endorphins beyond what we can send, what with falling in love and marrying.)

From: John MacKenzie

Me too! I subscribe to all the good thoughts and wishes. Hope they don't have to go the tracheostomy route, had one myself last year, and although they're not painfull, they seem to take a while to heal up. Plus it means you've got to block the tube to speak, so all Jacqui needs to do to silence you, is tie your hands down, and although bondage can be fun, they frown on it in hospitals.

OK - we've just got back from a meal and a couple of drinks after spending most of the day waiting to hear what happened in surgery.

Everything went OK - Kendall's surgeon is really happy with the results and tells us thay he has removed the tumour completely. Kendall took some time to come round (catching up with the sleep he missed last night, I reckon) and was looking very well when we finally got to see him at about 4.00 pm, having been at the hospital since 5.30 that morning. Luckily, SINSULL kept me company all day, which made the wait much easier.

He was still a little knocked out when we first got there but, by the time we left at 8.00 pm he was back to his usual irascible self again and that was a great relief. He's sassing the nurses as well so they will be glad to let him loose tomorrow.

We'll keep you posted once we get home.

Whooooosh! That's the big sigh of relief. I was more worried (concerned, CONCERNED!) about the Captain's surgery and results than the election and its results (so that's saying something).

Glad Sinsull was there with you, Jacqui. (Somehow I knew she would be.) Having recently gone through 7 hours in the ICU waiting room waiting for postings on the progress of surgery on the most important person in my life, I appreciate how important it is to not be there alone.

Cosmic hugs for everybody concerned -- and "real" ones in person soon. All the best for a complete and easy recovery.

Now some quietness for early recovery; then gradually, and carefully, retry the voice, use it sparingly, then more and more. Rebuild carefully. I was raised by storytellers/folklorists. If I can make Getaway next year for your anniversary I want the benefit of Kendall being in full voice.

I'm selfish. I believe I'm better off with healthy storytellers functioning "awlll over my" world.    Tw

Jacqui looks as if a good night's sleep is in order.

Well folks, the deed is done. Doctor Shapshay says it went off without a hitch, no tracheotomy, and he sent the samples to the lab to be sure he got all of it. He says I will have a speaking voice but as for singing, no guarantees there. At the same time, he said, and my regular ENT said that vocal cords have been known to regenerated, so, who knows? All your prayers and positive thoughts must have carried great weight with the Great Spirit. In the next bed in recovery was a middle age woman who had had radical surgery and was breathing through a hole in her neck; disgusting sound when she coughed, poor soul.
Anyway I have to go back for a follow up on November 17th, and the Doctor says there is no reason to not go to England in December.
Thasnks so much for all you have done to keep my spirits up. Speaking of spirits, I have a jug of Duggan's Dew o' Kirkintilloch Scotch to help celebrate.

We're back home, exhausted but happy to be here. The Cap'n has a ton of writing pads and gets a real telling off if he tries to speak - you wouldn't believe how peaceful it is here (says she getting ready to duck flying notepads).

We'll be starting a separate thread in the next couple of days for the UK trip. Just got to get the travel arrangements organised now, but maybe not today.

Love to you all for the good wishes, I'm sure that recovery will be much faster knowing that so many people care for him.

On the regeneration of vocal chords - I remember seeing some research 2 years ago about certain antibiotics and foods reversing colon cancer.

Very happy for you both

Wow, excellent news Kendall. Maybe I will get to hear you sing some time after all! I'm so pleased for you both.

The body's healing abilities are amazing, I find. A few months ago, I had the third of three operations on my wrist after breaking it badly nearly three years ago. It was very slow healing, but the metal plates in there were damaging the tendons and needed to come out. The doc said that if I wanted to have full use of my thumb, which wouldn't bend properly, I would probably need to have another operation some time to fix some of the damage to the tendons as they don't grow back - but there has been so much improvement beyond what was expected, that I've decided not to bother now.
