Invasive Sqamous Cell Carcinoma

Hi everyone, I was misdiagnosed 7 times last year with 6 different dr's who said I had MRSA. It turned out to be Squamous cell carcinoma. It was in my nose and eating my septum. I underwent25 radiation treatments and then had to have surgery that removed my nose, pallet, teeth and some lymph nodes.I have searched everywhere and can't seem to find anyone who has had this rare type. My Oncology surgeon said he had to take a good bit of good bone and tissue because they had only one chance to save me. That was in Dec. of 2011..In January I had a massive heart attack and they put a stent in my main artery. I would appreciate anyones help in finding out how you manage to deal with the pain afterwards. I stay in constant pain. Also burning and tingling making it almost impossible to eat. I am down to 87 pounds and can't seem to keep weight on. If anyone pout there has or had this particular kind I would love to talk to you. Thank you
