Hi everyone. I'm booked for partial glossectomy (tongue removal) & right neck dissection in 2 days & I'm sooo scared! Has anyone had this cancer? What is post op recovery? Will I be able to eat & talk normally again? This is my 4th cancer, all primaries, no metastasis, but this operation has me the most concerned about my quality of life afterwards.
Hi @Andrea55 and welcome!
How did the surgery go? I hope you are feeling as well as you can be at this point post-surgery 😘
