Hi. I was living in West Wales when diagnosed with WG in 2005 and was refered to Cardiff consultants in 2008. We have now moved near to Cardiff. Our main problem was while living in the West, my trachea closed completely due to scarring caused by the WG, I already had a trache since diagnosis, so I became mute and t here was no support or budget for a communication aid. After a year of struggle we purchased a Trutone electrolarynx privately. Perhaps if we had lived in the city then, things would have been easier. Many thanks..


Is it ok if we get back to you Indragon.. This might be quite useful... We are collecting evidence at the moment.

Thank you
