Reply to "Post-surgey cancer of the tongue. Will I ever be able to eat?"

So sorry to read your story  I had about 3/4 of my tongue removed in 2003 and while it isn't easy, I manage most things, albeit slowly, noisily & messily.  I guess  you have to persevere & find your own way of eating - thicker foods & drinks are easier (creamy mash, for example, and hot chocolate/choc milk are far easier for me - I live of those two drinks - which are highly calorific, but that's not always a bad thing  Make the most of your Speech & Language Therapist and your dietician  Good luck 🍀❤️
