My fiance had a stroke almost a year ago which affected the right side of his body. He is able to talk, but his tongue does not raise. As a result, thin liquids and mastication is difficult. Making certain noises is difficult. The speech therapist mentioned placing a prosthetic device that will augment the soft palate so that the tongue will be able to meet the palate to make speaking and eating easier. Has anyone ever had this device implanted? Thanks!
