Aaron’s Surgery

The surgery went pretty much as expected. Aaron had a good size scar band blocking about 50% of his airway. The doctor put a couple of cuts through the band and then stretched it open with a balloon catheter and applied some Mitomycin C. There’s a good chance this scar tissue will grow back, but hopefully his airway will stay open for a while. Interesting that the graft from his LTP back in 1997 looked very good. This scar tissue is above the graft, just below his vocal cords

Aaron is settled in his room and so happy to have this operation behind him! He has a bit of a sore throat, which is normal. Hopefully he will be able to go home tomorrow. Dr. Nuss gave us some photos of his airway, which I’ll post when we get home.

    Glad it’s over and everything seems okay. When you see Aaron next tell him I said “Hey” waiting to see the first edit of Freddy’s nightmares. Again I’m happy he’s okay.
