Have you read any of Tamvonk’s posts? She was a very active member on the forum a couple of years back. Her husband had a total glossectomy but has been able to eat and swallow. Maybe reading her posts will give you some hope. Personally, I have no experience with tongue cancer so I’ll leave Tammy’s posts speak for themselves.
