This is my first day on any message board so I am not sure what to expect.
I am scheduled to have Tongue cancer surgery (removal of half my tongue) and removal of 2 lymph nodes on July 20. My doctor said the surgery would take about 6 hours with a post-recovery period of 7-10 days.
I have read some replies to other posts that others have had similar surgeries. I would appreciate any information on what to expect from the surgery, recovery period and rehab.
I have had rediation treatments (39) and chemotherapy treatments (11). But there is still cancer tumor present.
