hi there. I was diagnosed with stage 4 SCC of the nasal septum in July of last year and was operated on in August 2018. The surgeons cut my head from ear to ear, peeled back my face and removed the tumor from the whole of the inside of my nose, and in the skull base which they hadn’t spotted prior to surgery. They rebuilt a new nose using bone, skin and the vein from my left forearm from the inside, all attached to a small titanium support screwed to the bottom of mt skull. I then had 30 sessions of radiotherapy to this area. The problem is, that 12 months on, the surgeons have realized that my body has “dissolved” the bone supporting my newly rebuilt nose and there is now nothing left. My face is sinking inwards, more severe now than “saddle nose” and the titanium clip is about to come through the skin (between my eyebrows). The surgeon has told me he wants to operate again urgently to stop this happening but has given me 3 options. 1. Go through the exact same surgery as before but using my right arm this time as a donor site, hoping that this time it works and my body doesn’t reject again, 2. Use a piece of rib and skin from my forehead or groin again, hoping my body doesn’t reject,or 3. Remove my nose completely and prepare the site for magnetic prosthesis. I have very limited time to decide and I just don’t know what to think. I don’t know how long it is after surgery my face will be ready for a new nose to be fitted, what happens in the meantime..will I have to go out with a hole in the middle of my face and if so, how long for? Can a person with a prosthetic nose do everything normally... swim, go out in the sun, go through airport security without having to remove the nose. I need help please.
