Hello, I'm new here but after reading some posts I finally realise I'm not alone. I had been cancer free since last June (Uvula) but just found out that the big C's back with a vengeance. So now I need my soft palate removed and replaced with grafts from my forearm and due to a necrosis of my jaw my teeth will probably have to be removed. Like many of you I've lost my sense of taste (except for salt), have difficulty swallowing and have lost 80 lbs so far (luckily I was obese and could afford the weight loss). I'm not sure I'm going to be able to cope with the after effects of all this.
