Patients diagnosed with cancer of the larynx or tongue are often unable to absorb all the information communicated by their health care professionals. This bestselling guidebook fills in the gaps, preparing patients for surgical procedures, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and quality-of-life issues. For physicians, speech-language pathologists, nurses, PMR therapists, dietitians, and other caregivers, this book is an ideal educational resource to give to patients, providing answers to commonly asked questions. It addresses concerns about cancer treatments, speech and swallowing, follow-up care, long term adjustment, and coping mechanisms in a straightforward, sensitive manner. The authors are highly experienced speech pathologists who also counsel patients on living a full and independent life after laryngectomy. With practical information on surgical procedures, therapies, and rehabilitation, this guidebook helps practitioners and patients work together to navigate through all stages of treatment. It will make the challenges of laryngectomy understandable and more manageable for all involved.
