in July 17 my husband had a panandoscopy biopsy which confirmed base of tongue cancer,the day after the biopsy & weeks before 6 weeks of radio/chemo started he has been unable to speak properly(has a lisp),tongue is raised one side,therefore unable to swallow easily & cant push food out with his tongue on one side. The Chemo/radiotherapy finished 24th Oct 17 he made himself come of the RIG & has been really trying to eat but has very little taste buds. He now has ‘Graves Disease, that he’s had twice previously,causing him to loose more weight, but even by drinking the shakes they give him,everything tastes disgusting. He has the ‘pet scan, in Feb. Could his tongue be permanently damaged? The doctor who performed the panandoscopy said not, but it must be. Has anyone else had problems with their tongue since having one?
