Well surgery went pretty well on tuesday according to my doctor. It looks like the primary was located on the left side of my tongue, but still waiting on pathology results.

Total surgery time was 90 minutes versus the 3-4 hours that the doctor said it would take. The only complications so far is difficulty breathing due to swelling. I also have issues trying to swallow because of the partial glossectomy. I was released from the hospital this morning.

Will post more later.

    Relax and heal. Hopefully swelling will go down soon.

    Hi Nous Defions,

    I am so glad it went well for the doctor and for you. The swelling will go down so breathing will get easier. Rest up, relax and regroup.

    Best,

    Matt
