A 28-year-old woman thought that the pain that she had in November 2015 was just a toothache. But, it was jaw cancer, not a toothache. Jenie Yoo started chemotherapy in March 2016. Firstly, things seemed to improve and her tumor stopped growing. But then the tumor started to get bigger and bigger, and she has been given very little time.
Jenie’s tumor became more aggressive last month, and her face is also swollen, as well as she has lost some of her teeth.
Jenie is housebound in Bangkok, Thailand.
Jenie can’t speak or eat, she is housebound in Bangkok, Thailand. She really needs help and support, so she turned to social media. Thankfully, she has wonderful family who take care of her.
Jenie says that her parents should not be stuck at home taking care of her, they should be enjoying their retirement. She said she is in constant pain and has seizures.
She has undergone 10 chemotherapy treatments, but unfortunately her cancer has been unrelenting. Specialists and surgeons in Seoul, South Korea, have ruled out surgery.
Jaw cancer starts in the jawbones, its symptoms include pain in check muscles, loose teeth, headaches, pain behind the eyes, stiff neck, ear pain, difficulty swallowing, and discomfort in the mouth. Do not take any of these too softly.
