Alex was in pain. The necrosed bone broke through the gum and was visible in his mouth.
He would experience problems with eating and drinking especially anything cold. The first time it happened it was like a piece of coral and rubbed against his tongue causing a huge ulcer.
His surgeon said ORN is like chasing a wave, so since last May we always knew recent events might happen. Initially he was given a 70% chance that it would work. If we think about how things have turned out we can become quite upset and angry that we were not informed in the very beginning that RT can cause this problem. We was warned about everything else. It really is a traumatic condition to have to deal with especially if you need a bone graft.
