Procedure or Surgery Associated with Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Cancer. Posted on June 5, 2013 View this journey (7 Experiences)

WLE floor of mouth and anterior mandible with bilateral neck dissection, direct laryngoscopy, fibular free flap. Surgery went as expected. The tumor under my tongue was removed and my jawbone was replaced with my lower leg bone. There was cancer in my neck that was removed and lymph nodes were removed from both sides of my neck. I had trouble with skin irratation at the incision sites due to sensitive skin. I also had much discomfort with the tracheostomy which had to be tolerated until time of removal three months after surgery.

Went as Expected: Agree
Minimal Recovery: Disagree
Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
