    Loss (Body part/function): The loss of my voice was much worse than I had thought it would be. It's sad, and very frustrating!

    Other Care (Home care): My home care was good, but I felt guilty that my best friend was my caregiver. I still feel bad..... On the plus side, I had a wonderful homecare nurse.

    Decision Point (Radiation or Surgery): I had to decide between radiation or surgery. I had Cancer on both vocal chords. I skipped radiation, and had a Laryngectomy. I regret having the surgery, even though it was the best thing to do medically.
