MyVoice-Cover

My Voice: A Physician's Personal Experience With Throat Cancer
The book captures three years of the author's life following a diagnosis of throat cancer and tells the story of how he faces and deals with medical and surgical treatments and adjusts to life afterwards. As a physician with lifelong experience in caring for patients, the author shares his insights and perspective on these events as he undergoes the effects of a severe illness through the eyes of a patient.

He endures the consequences of radiation, surgeries, and prolonged hospitalizations. He confronts medical errors, discrimination following loss of his vocal cords, and struggles to regain his ability to speak again and find new meaning to his life. The author shares his anxieties, frustrations, failures, and ultimate adjustment to life with continuous uncertainty about the future.

Through the author's insights, health care professionals may become more aware of what their patients actually experience, and patients who face similar hardships may find out how to cope with them.
