hello, haven't been in this site in a long time. hubby had surgery in 2014 for throat / oral cancer. he has had his ups and downs but overall doing good. had to have some follow up surgeries to make him a nasal drainage system. best way to  describe it as the surgery left him with no nasal opening and no where for natural drainage. tubes in ears and wow he could hear again. over all he keeps his weight steady. we have learned to adapt. that is tell this last couple of weeks. he grab his bottom has and said I think it broke! it has so much hardware in it I didn't think it could happen. we are getting so close to the wonderful 5 year mark. final got results and the jaw is broke. he has infection in it. send him to an infection doctor and try to save his jaw.if not they are talkin talking removal of the jaw bone and hardware from his main surgey. so at lose on more surgeries what to expect. trying to take it one day at a time. hard. looking for any information I can find. anyone else have any of these issues thanks so much

You folks are dealing with a difficult situation. I cannot give you any input personally but just wanted to say prayers your way and I have read on here people have talked about teaching hospitals being a source of help so maybe you can search them out and find an option. God Bless-
