Hi Herb!

The explantation of the device was complete (all wires, coils, etc) and went smoothly. However, somehow during the surgery they knicked my left vocal chord and I had to live with vocal chord paralysis for 5 months before my voice came back. I couldn't get above a whisper! The ENT did an in-office procedure (forgot what it was called) whereby he stuck a syringe through my neck right up against the damaged vocal chord andfilled in the weak spot with some sort of bonding agent. It worked great for a couple days then wore off. But like I said, my voice came back to 100% and everything is fine.

Thanks for askin!

> Dear Jerry,
> I was also curious to read how you are making out. Did your recovery from the explanting of the prosthesis go well? I don’t recall if you indicated whether or not you were able to also have the coils removed from the vagus nerve or were the wires just clipped as close as possible and left in place?

> Take care of yourself and good luck.
