  • My husband calls it my Borstal Spot

  • Hi John and Margaret, thanks for the thoughts just got home from the hospital.  Epiglottis has had frozen sections done and is now clear woohoo.  But they did find another small lesion on my vocal chord which has also been removed.  Hopefully now free of it but have to have the checks.  Finding it hard to swallow this time and have to have my liquids thickened for a while or I am choking on them.  Also mushy food but hopefully once swelling goes down it will be a bit better.  Now lets heal and am here to support you on your ride.  

    Best wishes all Mo xx
