Comments: I just found out that my father is going to have to have surgery to remove cancer in his throat. I went to the web because I feel that the more I know the better I can handle it. I have to tell you that when I went to you site and it blasted me with the mechanical voice that might soon be my father's it devastated me. I really believe that it should be an option, a link, to hear such. I was not ready to be hit with such reality. Please consider that many people who are looking to your site are doing so fresh with the news of this horrible future and don't need that slap across the face.

Comments: Hello, I coordinate the Jackson Tobacco Reduction Coalition in Jackson, Michigan. I would like to praise you for your webpage. It has wonderful resources to use. I hope to be able to open it when i am out at schools presenting information on tobacco cessation and secondhand smoke.
I have one question. When i was listening to the forum with the High School Students, you stated that secondhand smoke has 2 - 3 thousand chemicals in it of which around 60 are carcinogenic. All the information i have read indicates it is around 4,000 chemicals. What is your source of information on the lower number. We lose credibility when those in the prevention field are not saying the same thing. I just want my facts to be as accurate as possible. Again thank you for a wonderful website and a great resource.

After a tympanoplasty,w/mastoidectomy,i have lost of the sensation of taste on the surface of my tongue.  It has only been 24hrs since the surgery, is it possible that swollen tissues may be affecting the chorda tympani,or more likely that the nerve has been permanently affected in the proceedure?  Thank you for you're time, Rick...

Comments: PLEASE,HELP!

My brother has some kind of larynx cancer, and the surgeon wants to remove his voice box completely! Is this really the only option for him? He is 33 years old and he never smoked! He works as a cook. His voice sounded hoarse for a long time and he went to a doctor. Since then two surgeons make a total of three operations, and after the last one, the surgeon who made it, said that the first surgeon has had a mistake, and that there's nothing to worry about, but several days after operation he said that it's some kind of sarcoma and that the entire voice box must be removed and my brother will have to breathe trough some hole on his neck! As he said, my brother will lose his voice and sense of smell! That's awful!

I'm an engineer so I don't understand medical terminology at all, but this web site looks to me most complete of these I found regarding larynx cancer, so I'm asking hera for HELP. Please, my young brother doesn't deserve this!

P.S. I forgot to say - our grandfather (our mother's father) has died of larynx cancer but he was 74 years old, all-life-smoker. I personally quit smoking 4 months ago, and after seeing your site, I think I never would do it again...

Comments: I am a medical transcription student and was looking up the term Komed in the dermatology section of the book. I came across, on your site, the term Komed HC Lotion. Can you tell me what this is? There is another Komed for testing bacterial adipose tissue. I do not know which one I am looking for. Can you help? Remember, the only term I have to go with is Komed.

Thank you in advance,

Comments: I have suffered problems with my ears since an abscess formed at the age of 18. I am now an adult female of 44yrs with T tubes fitted in both ears since 1998. The right ear was perforated during surgery and i have since then put up with pulsatory tinnitus. Recently i have suffered bleeding from the right ear, and now have a better understanding of what is going on in there due to watching your movie on ear surgery. I found the site extremely informative. Thank you.

Comments: This site is very educational. I particularly browsed about tympanoplasty coz i am advised to have one due to ear perforation. But ive been having second thoughts because of the different feedbacks i got from different eent's. They said that this could be life threatening and i would like to know exactly why. But basing on my research here on the net, the surgery guarantees a 90% successful outcome. I hope you could help me decide. I've been having hearing difficulties and I want it repaired but Ive been scared of the complications. Help... Nice site... Thanks for creating this site. Very helpful patients like us. More power!

My name is Jon Brinkman, and I am currently an ENT/Facial-Plastics Resident at Grandview Hospital in Dayton, OH. I am a recent graduate of Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine. I am originally from Kentucky and plan to return to Kentucky to practice. I am currently looking around the country for places to do out rotations in the next couple of years and your practice and surgical variety are very impressive. I was wondering if you could send a quick note back to offer some advice on my electives as well as comment on whether or not you are willing to have an ENT resident in with you for a few months.
Thank you for your time.
