I am currently 5 weeks post op following a radical neck dissection and a T2 tumour resection of the floor of the mouth. I am a former smoker of 28yrs and I was diagnosed 4 months to the day of giving up. My tumour manifested itself in a period of approximately 10 days and i ahve been extremely fortunate that their was no neural,vascular or lymphatic spread so I will not have to undergo any radiation or chemo. I am really interested in sharing my experience with other people who are facing this cancer and would like to be able to help them understand what they may experience during treatment.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
