Hello to all I hope everyone is doing some what well. I am 25 years old, and in April of 2010 I got diagnosis with tongue cancer. I don't know what stage of what the correct name of the cancer is or shall I say was. On July 16,2010 I had my sergury to have part of my right tounge removed, along with the removal of my right lymph node. The doctors ws not sure if it infact did spread to the lymph nodes. Any how after the sergury was over I found that they had giving me a Tracheotomy only for breathing perposses, but the other big thing that scared me was that they had inplanted a metal plate in my jaw. They did'nt tell me that they were going to open my jaw. I am very upset at that but I am so thankful that the cancer I was told was fully removed. So they say I am cancer free. I dont know how much longer is my recovery. I do hope it's fast and healty.
