Suggest treatment for a hole in roof of the mouth

Dear Sirs/Madams, I am a Bangladeshi, aged 65 years. My oral Seagram, on suspiction of cancer has removed a tumor from the palate of my mouth. No symptom of Cancer has however, been observed on biopsy test after the said surgical operation, undertaken before about one year. But, unfortunately, a hole of ( about half an inch) has been developed at the roof of the mouth The hole is not healing as yet. As a result, I can not speak clearly,can not drink liquid ( eating harder or spicy food is almost impossible)with or without spoon. The hole at the mouth is not healing. Despite the fact that rice and spicy food are the principle food of Bangladeshi people; I could never eat rice even for once, for the last more than one year. The surgical cutting surface at the mouth is not being dried., Jelly is being formed and the mouth inside remains wait With sleepy jellies. The attending surgeon’s opinion, about the treatment/ or any visible improvement in treatment, is discouraging. My moments therefore, are passing most measurably. Besides this hole healing problem, I have been suffering from the following problem, associated with allergenic problem: Before about two years, I was attacked by brain hemorrhage and since than my left side of the body, including left arm, joints and left heap’ has become weak( partly paralyzed). Therefore, I can not walk or move without the help of wheel chair or any body’s assistance.. The left arm of the body, including the heap with adjacent joints and back of the body, have got some pain. I expect some comfort before leaving this world and therefore, solicit any body’s kind assistance, proper advice and suitable guidance for any sorts of relieves. Hope to be hoped with your esteemed and humeniterian assistance towards my causes. Kindest regards, look to hearing you. Sincerely yours, P:S :I am a poor resident of Bangladesh, aged about 65 + years. And suffering from various health complication and there are no body beside me to render any nursing or arranging foods and other living essentials .

Hello,

You can ask your doctor to advise you obturator that you could put on while eating and drinking and you can eat and drink whatever you want. Oral hygiene is another thing that your surgeon needs to address. Frequent cleaning of the opening will help prevent accumulation of debris.

The second option is the oral flap that has also very good results and this surgery is performed by Plastic Surgeon. If affording you can also go for this option but if this is out of your budget, then obturator would still be the best option.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Omair Choudhry, Otolaryngologist / ENT Specialist
