« on: June 19, 2020, 08:18:01 am »

I have noticed when my face is in resting face, my tumor side mouth appears higher than my non tumor side. Its not totally noticeable to people, but it frustrates me. anyone else have this? Anything that can be done to correct it?

I know there has been some time, but I am now seeing the same thing myself.  I am 3 months post radiation and now my AN side is the same as you describe.

Have you done any facial exercises or anything that might help with the nerve?
