      Hondo- I had robotic surgery for base of the tongue cancer one year ago. They removed the tumor and a portion of the tongue, but I've had no lingering effects from that. I also had a lot of work on my neck (lymph node removal) and radiation. Those procedures were much more difficult and long lasting. Good luck.
