I had surgery to remove the tumor on the hard palate in my mouth on April, 13, 2012. Surgeon wasn't sure how the surgery would go until we were in the operating room because he couldn't tell from the scans if the cancer went into the bone. Thankfully, it had not but to be safe he removed some bone which has left me a hole in the roof of my mouth. I have to wear an obturator. Without wearing this everyday I cannot speak, drink, or eat food.
