This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0439, "Total Laryngectomy". Total laryngectomy is the removal of your larynx (voice box). Your larynx is being removed because it has a disease (like cancer). Your usual way of talking will change after your surgery. This pamphlet explains what to expect before, the morning of, and right after your surgery. Other topics include what to expect at home, protecting yourself from the flu, stoma and laryngectomy tube care, supplies, humidity, speech rehabilitation, nutrition, follow-up, and symptoms that require medical attention. A recipe for sterile water is provided.
