Can you eat after total laryngectomy?

Yes. You can eat after total laryngectomy, just not immediately. Your surgeon and speech and swallow specialist will work with you after surgery to facilitate proper swallowing with minimal complications.

Can you eat soon after a total laryngectomy?

About a week. Doctors may vary here but in my patients we keep a tube down for about a week then remove it starting oral intake at that time.
