Hi @drmiller, welcome. If I understand correctly, you just had surgery for mouth cancer and lymph nodes in your neck were also removed. Correct? Were the lymph nodes found to also be cancerous? When was your surgery and how are you doing?
Hello @drmiller, I had tongue cancer some years ago and had my neck lymph nodes removed. It's not nice surgery! Hope you are healing well.
Yes,, I had surgery for oral carcinoma on march 10th. What would you like to know

I would like to know what your symptoms were? I’m dealing with a small mass on my parotid gland. It’s causing pain on my left cheek and side of head. I went to Mayo and after an ultrasound, the radiologist decided it was an extra flap of skin on my parotid. I’m not so sure as I’m having pain. Went to dentist, no teeth issues.
I think everyone's symptoms will be different. Post surgery, my main complaint is discomfort with the flap that was grafted into the mouth from the forearm. It is important to get up and do as much as you are able each day, which you are probably doing. If you are with the Mayo Clinic, you should be in great hands.
