Note To Denyse Before Head & Neck Cancer From Denyse Now. 53/2021.

Note To Denyse Before Head & Neck Cancer From Denyse Now. 53/2021.
Dear Denyse of 4 years ago,
It sure was a worrying time. I know you had to be very courageous & have the teeth & upper bridge removed 3 weeks ago.
.
You sure needed to know WHAT lurked under there to cause that pain & overgrowth.
.
But still you don’t know and this is your face trying best self-care you knew then.
.
Being kind but also very worried… what WAS the issue because it sure was still growing & this new temporary denture was very uncomfortable….
.
It will still be another couple of weeks before you show your former GP what it looks like under that denture & you will be shocked that she threw her hands to her face in reaction to what she saw.
.
You know then, it IS serious & thank goodness your dentist is finally back from holidays & he sees the gums – the smelly, flappy, sore gums & says:
.
The oral surgeon needs to biopsy this & you get that done: despite your intense anxiety & IBS because you are also getting CT of face & OPG done then too….
.
And then the results are initially OK but you ARE puzzled on how on earth your gums can heal/improve.
.
And on Wed 17 May 2017 at 9.25 a.m. your oral surgeon rings to say further testing shows it’s Squamous Cell Carcinoma….and you cry but with a sense of knowing what IT is.
.
And four years from this photo, you will know as I tell you, you are WELL & you can overcome more than you EVER thought possible.
❤️from 4 years on Denyse.
