reconstructive surgery ??

Hello all, Has anyone had reconstructive surgery for their palate and lip? I am weighing up pros and cons and would appreciate some feedback.

Glad you see you back and glad to see you asking about the reconstruction. I know I've read about others on my other sites who had had it. How are you going? I don't know but I think that in the long run you might be glad if you have it but for a year or so you may be unhappy .I'm only going by what you said before. I hope you get the feedback you need. All is good with me . My MRI showed no cancer, so it's you we worry about for now. Will talk soon.

Re: reconstructive surgery ??

I am sorry that your cat died. Ours died last year,19 years old ,a good girl too. Our dog ,13 years old,died as well and she was so easy and so well behaved.That was within a few months. I am feeling happier now .It seems many of us have these down times. I hope you are happy with whatever you decide regarding surgery.This makes me realise that I am fortunate that I did not have to face that .
