Has anyone had their epiglottis removed. I had mine removed in feb 2005 along with a partil laryngectomy, portion of my tongue and many lymph nodes. Not having an epigglottis has caused issues with swallowing, particulary liquids which I aspirate at times. This has led to 8 bouts of pneumonia, the last one feb 2013 was nearly fatal. Strangely every bout has occured in the winter months. I live in Pennsylvania. My doctor sugested I move to Florida but my family is here so that is not an option. Just hoping someone has expieience with this and can give some insight. God Bless.
