I had surgery to remove a large MEC from my palate on Aug 10, 2010. It was touching my jaw and caused a decalcification of my septum. I have a temp obturator, but it is not big enough. We do not know if I will be able to get one that will fit, if not I will work with it. Food goes up into the hole and can hurt, sometimes burn, but I keep eating to stay healthy. When I drink I know that fluid can come back out of my nose, but sometimes when I lean forward...without having anything to drink lately, a stream of liquid comes running out...I have to have tissue in my hands all the time, and I have to stuff it up my nose when I change my kids diapers...and I alone? Does anyone have this happen to them too...and does it go away? Will my permanent obturator fix this (if it fits right?)? Thanks!
