After undergoing a laryngectomy, Brien spent the next 18 years helping others going through the same thing, volunteering as a Laryngectomy Support Visitor in RBWH’s speech pathology department.

Briens procedure meant the removal of his voice box, which can lead to significant changes to the way that patients communicate, breathe and swallow. 

As the sole Laryngectomy Support Visitor in Brisbane for nearly two decades, he has spent so much time with patients and their families prior to their operations, which gave them the opportunity to ask questions to someone who has experienced the surgery firsthand.

“I try to keep it happy for them. I crack a few jokes. I’m trying to show them that life goes on after this operation. I’ve travelled the world and lived a full life, Brien said. 🥰

As we head into cold and flu season, its important to recognise the potential risk of developing pneumonia, and where possible, prevent it. 🤕

RBWH respiratory physician Dr Dona said that pneumonia is an infection of the lungs from a variety of organisms including viruses, bacteria and fungi.

Symptoms can range from mild to severe and are often similar to those of a cold or flu, but last longer. 

This is a timely reminder to get your flu shot this year, but if you already have a cold, it is best to rest, take regular paracetamol, keep hydrated, stay away from people who are sick and wear a mask if you can, Dr Dona said. 

If symptoms start to progress and you start to experience shortness of breath, chest pain, persistent fever and cough, and nausea, then I recommend being assessed by you GP as soon as possible.
