I had 60% of my tongue removed and a 'patch' from my right leg to replace it in November 2012 plus both sides of my neck Re sected, followed by 6 weeks radiotherapy in Jan/Feb 2013. I have obviously changed to a very soft diet and now don't speak quite as I did before. My salivary glands were damaged by the radiotherapy and now I have either a very dry mouth - feels as though all the moisture has been sucked out - or a mouth flooded with saliva! Help! Does this improve with time???
