Hello, I really don't remember the last time I was here! My dentist discovered a lump in 1993. Why me? I was looking for the ones like me...This site has helped me for 15 or 20 years???
Scamous maxilar (under tongue) cancer. First radiation with iridium therapy in 1993. Very stressful but positive after 3 or 4 months.
Another place under tongue (other side) discovered year 2000. Cirurgical removal extensivly, a large cirurgie taking 9h at hospital, recovery inside the hospital 4 weeks, reconstruction of tongue, another surgery one year later to liberate the tongue... A long way (lost my job, my face was different, couldn't eat or talk properly for months) and I'm always anxious for the examination I have once a year. All teeth removed. BUT still alive and thinking. 71 years old.
Please be patient with yourselves and remember that the support of others/family is very important. On the other hand, I'm convinced (as for my problem) that stress and living in it, years, days and hours of problems, is a strong cause for these cancers and recovering. Have HOPE, take care and a good life, denying what and who is wrong according your deep feelings.
