Hi I have just had surgery for Salivary Gland cancer, I have had a partial glossectomy at the base of my tongue and a radical partial neck dissection. I've now been told as I had 2 lymph nodes which were cancerous that I have to have radiotherapy, I'm terrified as the side effects sound dreadful. Has any one had it? How were you affected? I'm worried about rotten teeth, dry mouth and a sore throat for the rest of my life.
