Worrying

19 Jun 2019 16:36

I am having a total parotidectomy next Thursday! To remove a tumour from my neck! To say the least I am concerned of the outcome. Just wondering if anyone else has been through this as my surgeon says a bigger op as in deep lobe.

Any advice would be appreciated thanks

Hi Stocky, 

I've searched through the forum and found this discussion from last year that you may want to have a look at.

@stevetu ‍ joined the forum in April and revealed they had this done recently as well so hopefully they'll pop by to share their experience with you when they can now I've mentioned them in this post.

I hope this helps but if you would like to talk this through with someone then do give our cancer nurses a call on 0808 800 4040. Their phone lines are open Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m.

Wishing you all the best for next Thursday Stocky.

Kind regards,
