My mom was diagnosed this past november for squamous cell oral cancer. She has undergone surgery to remove 4 bottom teeth and a piece of her jaw bone underneath those teeth. The doctor resected the gum with cheek and under the tongue skin. My question is has anyone out there had somthing similar to this. She is very uncomfortable from the surgery, she describes her mouth as feeling tight and also like there are wires in it. She is currrently waiting to have a salivary gland removed because it is not working properly.
