Lovely to hear things went well (albeit the stupid questions!). Hope you are now back to being able to tell people off in good voice!
Loads of love
I told you you'd wake up!! So glad you are out the other side and feeling positive about the results. The 48 hours must be up by now, I think - how's the voice?
lots of love
It is good to read your post, I hope you are continuing to make a good recovery. I could really connect with the experiences of inefficiency. Earlier today I re-read the draft of a letter I sent last November to the hospital trust its so frustrating to deal with stupidity at the best of times let alone when you are waiting for treatment.
Take care of yourself, I hope your partner is taking good care of you. I wonder do you talk a lot at home? does she think she's gone deaf? Either way I bet she will be glad to hear to chatting again.
Bye for now
See you are out there - how is the voice?
I remember when I went for my last bone scan I told them I would have to either laugh or cry at the preganancy question...I have been on zoladex, no periods, age 44, coping with secondar cancer. How could I be pregnant????Its ridiculous.
Really pleased all went well......
on reading these posts I had a flash of you and Dippykate doing a Kareoke
with alot of dimented nurses.
Hope fully now when people ask how you are you can reply...
In full voice!!!!!
Hi Jane, Happy to hear that you feel that your procedure was a success!!! I can't imagine keeping quiet for 48 hrs. It would be extremely difficult for me to do!!! Funnyface
Hurrah! Hope you are in full voice very soon.
Isn't the pregnancy question a pain in the proverbial? I have to have a pregnancy test every time I go for my Avastin, despite all of my assurances that there is NO WAY that I can be pregnant. And I mean, NO WAY!
Glad to see you back and glad it went well for you sort of. Wow, 48 hours, that will seem like forever. Bet u dont wait that long.
Fek the lot of them, that's what I say. Do what you have to do - and what you want to do. Welcome back 🙂
Good luck to us all.
sooooo glad to hear you are through it, and even more happy to hear you feel it's worked out. I hope you will soon be telling everyone exactly what you think of thier s***** service and they can hear every word and intonation clear as a bell!!
Hope so much it is good news and lovely to have you back. Can't wait to hear your new voice. And yes those questions can drive you mad, but only if you let them.
Take care - we need you here
Glad it all went ok on the op side of things. Unbelievable the questions you were asked - on a par with me at 45 being asked to do a dementia test when admitted to a care of the elderly ward!!
Can't wait to hear your new voice!
good to hear all went well, it is so important that you dont speak for 48 hrs. I know as many years ago I had growths on my voice box had them removed and was told not to speak but as I was running a a pub from the Nuffield in Chester and my assistant could or would not read the notes I was frantically writing. After about 71/2 minutes I lost my temper and screamed at the p.llock. Well my voice came back a fair bit higher.
Good to see you posting and that all went well, bar a few idiots.
Fingers and toes crossed for the voice, good that you already have a sense that there's going to be improvment.
Glad to hear all went well despite the nurses! But how are you going to last 48hrs without trying out that "new" voice???!!
Love K x
Glad to hear that procedure's been done now, and that you're feeling optimistic about its success. My memory of having tonsils out (56 years ago!) is that ice cream is very good for croaky sore throats . . .
It's very good to hear that! Hang in there and carry on keeping us updated.
well done for getting through it and glad you are as cantankerous as ever, that was how I was described recently and I'm glad I am too
Thanks for everyone's good wishes
Had loads of hanging around yesterday with the most inefficent nurses I have yet encountered (penalty for having private med insurance?) so over anxious to compelte from filling that I twice got asked if I had had a pregnancy test and more than that about what kind of anti allergy plaster I would like to cover up my ring (No am not allergic to anything...I told you that 5 minutes ago.) Rather worrying lack of joined up thinking...no 59 year olds on chemotherapy (clue...bald head..no I've haven't bought the chemo drug with me) tend not to get pregnant particularly not with female partners.
But aneesthetist was lovely and the surgeon. Woke up...woke up feeling OK...not supposted to speak for 48 hours, but I can tell it has worked and feel optmiastic about speaking though croaky at moment (and bad sore throat for a while.)
Have been thinking of you and am looking forward to seeing you back on here in full voice.
Hope all went OK for you today and that things improve for you with your voice.
Bit late as always .... but thinking of you lots today and hope your voice returns to some of its former glory.
All the best,
Hi Jane I just wanted to add my best wishes.
Good luck for tomorrow, I'll be thinking of you.
Just wanted to wish you all the best for tomorrow Jane. Hope all goes well, with good results and a speedy recovery. Here's to a booming voice again on Thursday! Take care,
Its tomorrow I think?All the very best to you for a speedy recovery from the procedure.Love Vx
Jane - thinking of you - hoping for a successful and straightforward procedure.
Hope all goes well and will thinking of you and hope next time we meet you will shouting us at the other end of the table.
Love Beli x
Jane - Wishing you all the very BEST.
GOOD IDEA about BCC keeping all the unusual symptoms you have encountered.
Pump up the VOLUME girl.
Jane - hope all goes well and look forward tohearing your voice again. It's done it again- I'm at Heather's house and logged on as dippy kate but it had headlined it as Heatherlou - argg - thought new web site would overcome this
Thinking of you, Jane. Be back soon and tell us all about it. As Dahlia said, you'll always have a voice on here.
Good luck to us all.
Hope all goes well Jane. It must be very difficult having "no voice". Hard to imagine. I didn't know you had a website. Would love to have a look. Could you tell me the website. If it's not allowed here on BCPals
