This booklet has been written by people who have lost their voice boxes - Laryngectomees - for Laryngectomees and their families and friends. It aims to answer most of the questions Laryngectomees and their families and friends will have before surgery and after. Together with the many health care professionals ( including doctors, surgeons, radiotherapists, nursing staff, speech pathologists, physiotherapists, and social workers ) with whom you will be closely involved in the weeks to come, "You Can Say That Again" demonstrates that a return to normal life is not only possible, but most likely. It shows that loss of speech need be only temporary and that the adjustments you will have to make, while challenging, can be made. During the weeks ahead you will be helped by a caring and willing band of people ranging from your surgeon, through social workers, speech pathologists and other Laryngectomees, to your family and friends.

In a partial (subtotal) laryngectomy you may have a temporary tracheostomy. The temporary trachesotomy will help your breathing. Swallowing can be difficult for some time after partial laryngectomy surgery but this will depend on the exact kind of surgery. Some people may have operations just on their vocal folds, they are less likely to have major swallowing problems but will have a rough and breathy voice.
