I am living in Waterford, Co Kilkenny. I had a complete Laryngectomy (voicebox removed) in Oct 2010. I have had 6 weeks of radiotherapy treatment with ended at Easter.

Would like to communicate with anyone who has had this procedure.

Dear Chris,

I am sorry to hear of the difficult time that you are going through. If you do not hear from somebody who has had a laryngectomy through this message board you could ask your Speech and language therapist to arrange for you to communicate with someone.

Alternatively please see these links to some helpful websites:

The Cancer Information Service Nurses at the Irish Cancer Society would be very happy to talk to you and try to answer any of your queries on their Freefone Helpline 1800 200-700 from Monday to Thursday 9am -7pm and Friday from 9am -5pm. You can also email us at helpline@irishcancer.ie

With kind regards,
Cancer Information Service Nurse

I had a laryngectomy in 2007 and 30 day's of radiotherapy after
I just came across this site i didn't know there was one in Ireland
I would like to get in touch with other laryngectomees as there is not many of us about saying that every time i go for a check up there is always one or two about pity there is no meeting's for laryngectomees in Ireland like in the UK as i think the would be a great source of information for us
