Sorry, i was meaning to put this in my original thread, instead of starting a new one,but cannot not find it.
Only a few more days before my op,and i am stressing with fear that i may die on the table.
I was told by the doctors that the tumor under my tongue is about 4cm long and stage 2
So what does stage 2 mean?? good - bad - in between??
I was told they hope to cut it all out and then take a skin graft from my wrist to fill the hole,and have a tracheotomy for a few day, in what they say will be an 8 hr plus operation, in which they will do biopsies in other areas.
And then radiotherapy,and speech therapy.
So how risky is this op, and expected recovery time
Thanks in advance
