A laryngectomy, which is the removal of the larynx, is a life changing procedure that impacts basic functions we often take for granted, such as breathing, the ability to communicate and swallow. 

After the larynx is removed there is no pathway for air between the throat and lungs, which is why a permanent hole called a tracheostoma is made in the patients neck. Luckily, speech therapists like Ann-Louise from the RBWH outpatients department are here to support our patients through the process.

Breathing now happens naturally through the stoma, but because the air no longer passes through the nose, a patients sense of smell and taste is often affected. We also hold smell rehab groups to help patients learn how to smell in an alternative way, Ann-Louise said. 

The most common rehabilitation option is a voice prosthesis which offers the most natural sounding voice option, but does require regular cleaning and changing. We see most of these patients for the rest of their lives and get to know them really well. 🥰

Annie and the Speech Pathology team are world class - keep up that amazing patient centered care ladies!

I haven’t seen this beautiful face since working at the speech pathology department nearly 20 years ago now 🥰

Truly, natural remedies do work. If they didn't, we wouldn't have used them for thousands of years. And, pharmaceutical companies wouldn't be studying plants, taking extracts of them, and patenting them as drugs.this is not a claim or lies I was totally cured from hashimotos and neuropathy by Herbalist sebi, His remedy is surely the best. I suggest you try him out if you are having any health challenges and also get cured too, give him a try 👇👇 Dr sebi hiv/herpes & hepatitis cure

At the Sony YouCan Centre at RBWH, young cancer patients and survivors get to experience the transformative power of creative arts in healing and wellbeing. 🎼

You Can Make Some Noise is a new six-week program offering cancer-affected young people the chance to express themselves through music and songwriting workshops under the guidance of professional musicians.

Ainslie, a 23-year-old cancer survivor who sings and plays the clarinet, has been participating in the program since the pilot in 2022. At the time, she was an in-patient at RBWH undergoing intensive daily chemotherapy for acute promyelocytic leukaemia. 
 
It is the bright spot in my week. Its been such an honour to be part of something so special, and to be able to honour my late partner, Joe, through music, Ainslie said. ❤️
