HI everyone, I was told that now that I have finished the second round of chemo, I am able to have surgey to try to remove the last of the cancer. Thje doc said that I could possibly lose part or all of my tongue, my voice box, what little ability to swallow I currently have, and the ability to speak. And there is no guarantee that they will be able to get all of the cancer out. So I am looking for options, and opinions from anyone who has had this type of surgery. Based on the limited information I have at this point, I am inclined to say no to the surgery. Any input will be a great help. Thanks in advance.
