what is the function of the left vagus nerve?. I will be having surgery to remove a benign but enlarging tumor on the left vagus nerve in my neck, near the juggular vein. the surgeon plans to remove the section of nerve with the tumor and graft a section of a superfical nerve in its place. what symptoms can I expect after surgery. He said my heart rate will increase and I might lose the ability to sweat on that side of my face. What else can happen? the tumor is growing so I don't have much of a choice thanks Jean06marie
