    Work problems

    Oh No

    Mole in my upper left inside of ear that never new existed. Ended up having 60% of ear removed, 2-cancerous15mm tumors, 60 lymph nodes, 6 cancerous, removed saliva gland & parotid gland cancerous,cut behind my ear & clear down my neck to chest. To this day, 19 months later, the pain in m neck, shoulder & ears, because of all the nerves that were cut, is still between 7 - 10. Prescribed numerous medications & still have not found the right balance that does not make me groggy & sleep 4 - 6 hrs during the day. I will nod & fall asleep in the middle of a conversation or working at the computer & will fall asleep.
