Despite having no real tongue to speak of my speech isn't too bad (people can understand what I'm saying- apart from certain sounds like D, G, L, N, T, th etc) but surprisingly I get by fairly well.
The issue that's really getting me down is eating. I have a stomach tube, but I can manage (and taste!) liquids. Although I struggle with anything a bit thicker (mash potato for example) as I just can't move food from the front of my mouth to the back.
I suppose my question is- will this ever get better? Is there anyone else who has had as much of their tongue removed as me that can manage more than just liquid? If I have to rely on the feeding tube for life as a "top-up" then I can live with that, but it gets me down to think I might never eat again.
Any in-put much appreciated.
