Thread Name: BS: Kendall's biopsy
Subject: RE: BS: Kendall's biopsy
I've just heard from Kendall who has seen the Boston specialist today.

They will be operating on 2nd November and have confirmed that the cancer can be dealt with using laser surgery. At the worst, if they have problems accessing the area he may have to have a temporary tracheotomy for a few days but it is more likely that they will be able to do the work without cutting his throat!

They are going to want him to stay in hospital at least overnight and he has been told that, as there is a certain amount of inflammation around the area from his forcing his voice too much (probably ranting about Bush!)he must, for the moment, start speaking more softly so not to increase the inflammation. After the operation he has to rest his voice for a while so won't be able to express his feelings about the election results very vociferously this year.
