Depends: Depends on much tongue has to be removed and what type of reconstruction is performed. Acutely, patients can be fed using feeding tubes. As they recover and begin to take food by mouth, the tube is removed. In few patients, the tube feedings are permanent.

Alcohol antibiotics: While many antibiotics can be safe with alcohol, the side effects of either of these are very similar; for example, upset stomach. There are specific antibiotics that can not be mixed with antibiotics as they can cause severe reactions; therefore, as a general recommendations, we usually like patients to refrain from mixing these.

No: An occasional short night sleep does not affect you health. However, a chronic, constant sleep deprivation of one hour leads to 30h (>1day!) missed restorative night time sleep. Chronic sleep deprivation is associated with increased risk of stroke, heart attacks and early death.

Gums or inside lips?: Most hardware won't cut gums, a few rarely used attachments might. If gums are cut check with orthodontist. You might have gingivitis instead. A few rare proceedures require an incision which heals quickly. If cheeks& gums cut cover sharp area with wax and check if it can't be covered or if the area doesn't heal quickly check with orthodontist.
