Osteoradionacrosis

Has anyone suffered this side effect ? My husband has just undergone surgery for this problem.
Part of lower right mandible damaged,so the necrosis cleaned away and a fan flap from his cheek used to cover the exposed bone. His surgeon said there is a 70 per cent chance it will work or he will need a bone graft. He has so far lost 35lbs in weight and every day is a struggle at the moment.when this journey began last Oct nobody mentioned the downside of radiotherapy apart from how ill it makes you while you are having it,which he got through. It's all the late side effects that catch you out!!
