Hi my husband had floor of the mouth cancer also in 10 nodes and yes there is a lot they don't tell you the dissection of his throat was a breeze although it didn't look very pretty.Then came the hard part they took all his teeth out before the radiation and boy that was the worst they said he would get his taste buds and saliva back in 3-4 mths.4 1/2 years later no saliva no taste buds and cant eat solids milk shakes get a bit boring afer this long.Its also damaged the top of is spine so his neck is shot. So that is what they didn't tell us so we are living the new life now.All the best to you.
