I have had 4 surgeries for HCC. The most recent was a bilateral neck dissection on July 23rd. The op took 5 1/2 hours and the incision is from just below my right jaw, past my collar bone, up to my left jaw. (like a horseshoe). I have had no major problems from the surgery. My sense of taste is messed up, but that was after the RAI treatment. Good luck to you.
