My son had his surgery last wednesday august 4. It lasted 10 hours and I didnt get to see him until three hours after that. Needless to say i was pacing the floor. The first doctor removed the entire tumor and the tissue around it. The next doctor went in and took bone and tissue from his leg and rebuilt the left side of his jaw. He is breathing through a traque in his neck. He also has a feeding tube in his nose. Surgery was a success!! No chemo or radiation for him this time!! He is young and strong and will heal quickly. I think we will b going back home by Friday. Home nurses will probably take over from there.
