    second surgery

    following the surgery on 12/19/12, it now has shown up in my Jaw Bone. New surgery now scheduled for 2/19/13. It will involve partial to full removal of Mandible. Has any one else had this?

      I cannot imagine the concerns that you have regarding this upcoming surgery. I am an oncology nurse and I am hopeful that you are aware of the option of silicone implants to reconstruct the jaw. There are mandibular implants that can be made to restore your features. If this is a concern, please ask your oncologist for a consult with a craniofacial surgeon. Best of luck to you. You are in my thoughts, Carm RN.
