hi, my husband & i are new to the group..wish we knew about it sooner. mike had a complete dissection of the tongue in april with a free flap made from back muscle & skin.lately when he rinses, he's noticed some of the surface peeling off, nothing major. we think it may be scar tissue from the rad. fyi, he had his last chemo on july 29 & last rad on july 30. if anyone else has had free flap & noticed surface peeling, any advice. his onc. wasn't concerned.
