Subject: BS: The latest on Kendall
From: jacqui.c
Date: 15 Jan 10 - 05:21 PM

This is going on email, Mudcat and Facebook.

Kendall had his latest bout with surgery today, ostensibly to remove a further cancer from his vocal cord. Unfortunately, once they got in there, his surgeon found that the vocal cords were totally shot, with cancer spreading and radiation having done the rest of the damage. As a result there is too much damage to be able to do anything via the mouth.

Dr Zeitels now tells us that he will need to do a partial laryngectomy, taking away the infected skin on Kendall's throat, which Dr Z. thinks is connected to the vocal cord problem, and then to take away and replace his larynx, using donated aorta for that job.

The surgery will require the talents of Dr Z., a cardiac surgeon and a plastic surgeon. We are being allowed to wait until after the Grammys, at the end of the month, but it must be done then.

Kendall will be in hospital for at least two weeks afterward and then there will be work needed to tweak the new materiel to give some voice, over a period of time. How long this will take and what it will entail we don't know right now – we're both rather shellshocked.

I don't believe (?) this type of cancer grows that fast, and we're only talking a couple weeks here.

He's in the right place and has the right doctor. Aside from that, everything sucks. This whole turn of the wheel, starting about when the leaves fell, sucks.

Kendall knows how we feel about him--all of us who are his friends. BOTH of you know how much you are loved by friends, not to mention your family. There is hope, if Dr Z is talking about re-building. Another place to start. Love you guys.

Dr. Zeitels is obviously out there on the cutting edge.....no pun intended there. That's a pretty new technique and a lot of sites never mention it.

Yeah....Its bad news but,not to sound like Pollyanna, the fact that he can remove all the cancer and give some possibility of voice is at the least encouraging.   A partial also means there will be no permanent stoma and gives you a shot at something a whole helluva' lot better than a complete one.

Now go kick a wall, buy a ball bat and beat the hell outta' a guardrail somewhere and whatever else. This sucks.........

No words beyond that.........just fuck........

Jacqui and Kendall, you have been so incredibly patient, and have gone through so much together, but I remember when this first started, Kendall complaining about a sore throat, a few strings pulled, getting in to see the right doctors. And Jacqui came along in the midst of all of this. There's something magical about you two, and I think you still have a few miracles to go before this cancer drama is finished and that cancer is defeated.

Of course you'll be timing this surgery however it feels good for you. Everyone wants it over as soon as possible with the best outcome possible, so if the Grammy's are part of that best outcome formula, more power to them.

The other night I dreamt about a musical gathering in a large house (?) and Jacqui and Kendall and lots of others were there. KT was there too and she sang first. And then Kendall sang- we were all agog over how strong his voice was- not all the way back to before all this began but definitely stronger than it's been the last while. Kenall didn't have much to say, just grinned and grinned.

I'll hold on that to that thought.

An abstract from Kendall's doctor:

--

Optimizing voice after endoscopic partial laryngectomy.

Zeitels SM.

Department of Otology and Laryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, 243 Charles Street, Boston, MA 02114, USA. smzeitels@meei.harvard.edu

Phonosurgical management of early and midsized glottic cancer has evolved considerably during the past decade. There has been a partial migration from transcervical to transoral partial laryngectomy to diminish perioperative morbidity (ie, tracheotomy) and to facilitate subsequent voice restoration. After an endoscopic partial laryngectomy heals, a medialization of the glottal neocord should be done. An endolaryngeal injection or transcervical medialization is used to reconstruct the glottal valve and the associated aerodynamic competency, which ultimately enhance voice quality. These reconstructive techniques will improve the voice outcome subsequent to almost any endoscopic vertical partial laryngectomy; however,a near-normal conversational level voice can be achieved inpatients in whom there is one remaining normal vocal fold. These favorable results are based on the fact that after effective glottal closure is achieved through the reconstruction, the primary oscillator is the layered microstructure of noncancerous glottal tissue.

--

Sorry for the medical language. If I read that right, it means that Kendall's prognosis could be very positive, though maybe not "near normal conversational." I have seen throat cancer yield much worse results than this. I also glean that Kendall's surgeon is a real specialist in this area.

Of course, I have no idea what I'm talking about. Is there a doctor in the house?
