I am fixing to have surgery on October 18th - the cancer is in my jaw bones - they are going to have to remove my entire bottom mouth part and replace it with a bone and tissue from my leg, I will be on a ventilator for awhile, and have an air pipe in my throat and a feeding tube in my stomach. I may or may not have to have the feeding tube forever and I may not be able to talk or swallow for a long time either. It will be a 12 hour surgery and they may have to do radiation after that and then the chemo. And they are taking out my lymph nodes.
