I am contacting on behalf of my dad whose cancer had returned after 4 years clear , this time the tumour was in the jaw. He had a stroke while in surgery as he suffered complications. It’s been a really difficult journey for him as he can’t soesk or eat and today the speech therapist pretty much said after a 4 week scan if swallowing hasn’t improved then there is nothing they can do for him
We are all devastated and he is broken man as all he wants is too eat and speak again
I am angry because the surgeons created this situation and now we are left to deal with consequences
I want to know if anyone has experienced this particularly in regards to speech therapy and did you explore private options/clinics
We are not ready to give up and just need some hope.
