I had tonsil cancer, stage 4a. I had a lump on the left side of neck. It was squamous cell cancer. Had radiation and chemo. Radiation scarring caused a problem with eating. I still have a feeding tube, also had a dissection on the left side of neck. I will know in three weeks after another larynscopy, this time through my feeding tube. Dr was unable to go that far down when I was in the office. After this procedure, I might be a canidate for reconstruction for my throat using skin grafs from my arm and thigh. I also have a tracha, if not I will need to have to laryngectomy. I will be going to a New York Hospital.
