Reply to "Tongue Cancer Diagnosis"

Hi Kimberly

I was also concerned about my speech after the operation as I am a clinical psychologist so spend a lot of time talking to people! When we thought I was having more of my tongue removed and a tongue flap I was told that this would ensure that I could still speak OK although I would not speak quite as well as before and would sound different. As I did not have the flap my speech is pretty near normal (just sound a bit slurred occasionally if I get tired).

All the best
Gwyn
