A journey about dealing with ameloblastoma, and the recovery after.
Hi,I'm a 29 year old woman in London who's recently been diagnosed with a large ameloblastoma. I was told that it would need surgery but not until I was referred to another hospital 2 days ago to meet the surgeon did I realise just how serious this thing is. I've fortunately been given the option of having the tumour 'scooped' out, aside from the more conventional treatment of having part of my jaw removed - it's slightly less successful in preventing recurrence but is the less invasive surgery. I will almost certainly be left with numbness but not to the extent you have experienced, just half of my bottom lip. I think I'm very similar to you in that I've just dealt with everything as it comes because I think that's the only way you can without going crazy! I have been looking round the internet though because I want to know more and that's how I cam across your blog. I just wanted to say that I think your facing it all with a lot of humour and strength and your blog has given me some comfort and a certain amount of peace in the knowledge that there is support put there. Good luck, and I'll keep reading to see how you're doing!
