Hi. I was operated upon for SCC of retromolar region in May 2016, my free flap from the thigh failed and a PMMF flap was put in place from my chest. I underwent 33 session of radiotherapy and pulled through despite all the side effects which kicked in. My major problem is that I am unable to open my mouth more than 1 cm which is causing eating problems too. My surgeon has suggested stacking up ice cream spatulas,but I'm not getting any relief, only pain. Can anyone who has gone through this give suggestions ? Also will the large bulk of swelling on the face due to the muscle flap reduce ever ? I need to get back to work in a week and I'm worried.
