Swollen tongue

Okay,  anyone else suffer with a swollen tongue and very hard to understand speech?

I'm 7 years out of treatment and all of a sudden one Friday morning I wake up talking like daffy duck 

Any suggestions?

Thanks John

If the swelling is recent, I suggest that you contact your doctors about it.  Maybe start with your primary care and go from there if you need to.  There may be something they can suggest to help.

And you can also get a referral to a speech therapist from your cancer center or ENT.  Even if this is not correctable such an expert may be able to help you use what you have left to improve your speech.

All the best,
