I'm new to the site, I was diagnosed with stage 4 mouth cancer which had spread to all my right hand side of face. I have had 11 operations which included a maxililectamy, which removes the total jaw, nose. I have lost hearing in my right ear . I have lots of metal plates , implants and a full obturator installed which has to be cleaned 3 times a day. My speech is different and I do now have a lisp .I still struggle with pain, eating and swallowing but I'm still here. I thank my surgeons for saving my life and remember never give up. If you need any help or just want to chat I'm here.
