i went to an ent specialist in 4/07. I was complaining that i was having trouble swallowing like something was in my throat. he looked down my throat with a scope and sent me for a swallowing x-ray test. I went back for the results, he said there was no obstruction in my throat. meanwhile my throat was a bit hoarse and again i told him i was having trouble swallowing. He said that he didn't see anything and sent me home. After 2 months went by i returned to the ent specialist, in tears this time, begging him to find out why i can't swallow my food properly and my throat was sore. this time he saw something in my throat. he got very excited, calling a collague into look down my throat. the day after the next, he had me in the hospital for a biopsy, it was positive for cancer.after 2 months of radiation he sent me for a pet scan (a test to detect cancer). he said it was negative. Yet 2 months later i was back in his office with trouble swallowing. this was the cancer returning. end result, i am now 52 with my youngest child being 12 yrs old and i have had a full larynectomy which means i will never talk again.i have lawyers that have reviewed all my medical records and have taken on a malpractice case for malpractice. guess i should have not been so trusting in the doctors diagnosis when i knew i couldn't swallow properly.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
