Advice & Tips:
I love my tracheotomy. The coughing and mucus that I experienced with my bipap were a real curse and now they are under control. I get the air I need and much more energy. I have regular suctions every day, and I only cough a little at those times. With just a little maintenance, I can look forward to every day with joy and happiness. Getting a tracheotomy was a very good decision for me.
