When i found out, in December of 2021, that i had a adenoid cystic carcinoma tumor at the base of my tongue and would need a total glossectomy and laryngectomy within weeks...well, i was shocked. terrified. horrified.
It didn't take me long to start googling the heck out of what my life would look like 'after'. I have to tell you, i didn't find much. The information was scattered. Often clinical. I accidentally came across horrifying images of the procedure itself - no thanks, i'm good. I really had no idea what my life would really look like, what the lives of others might look like. I've been learning as i fumble through this new journey.
I hope you will find this site informative and perhaps entertaining.
