Hi I am 28 yrs old, I having tongue tie problem as once I got surgery 6year back. Now again I facing hard speech issue and tongue tie. ..please advise?

Unusual: Surgical reshaping of the tag of tissue under your tongue, the mandibular lingual frenum, is a permanent change. Lack of tongue mobility and speech alterations are troubling signs. You need to see an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon or an ear/nose/throat specialist immediately. This can't wait. ...Read more

Simple surgery on tongue (Tip)

Be aware that there are specialists in all areas these days. This applies to rehabilitation from surgery or injuries as well. I would advise you to seek out the experts and then let their advice become your routine. Time and space separate you from whatever initiated the damage. Focus on what you have and then go from there. Some of us will pass through life without splitting a toenail. Most of the rest of us are not so lucky. ...See more

I have a numb tongue from waking up after surgery. It's all gone but one spot what could have happened?

How Long ago was it?: It is not uncommon to give local injections in oral surgeries or give topical local to make the intubation less uncomfortable. The local from that could last a while. Also, you could have had compression of your tongue that caused nerve injury. That can take longer to come back. Let your anesthesiologist know. ...Read more

Is partially numb tongue causing my lisp? Should I consider having the nerves repaired? If so, how successful is the surgery? If not, any other option

Is partially numb tongue causing my lisp? Should I consider having the nerves repaired? If so, how successful is the surgery? If not, any other option

Yes possibly cause: A partially numb tongue could create or add to a lisping issue. What is causing the numbness issue? A trauma possibly removal of impacted wisdom teeth or tongue piercing could damage the nerve that innervates your tongue. Time is critical here the older the trauma the poorer the chances of healing. If trauma greater than a year old a repair likely will not work. Please consult a oral surgeon ...Read more

Dad w/tongue ca having symptoms tomorrow by e.N.T dr. My sister suggest we see the oncologist first and possibly have him do the surgery. Any suggestions?

She may be right: Medical oncologists are specialists who decide about use of chemotherapy. Your dad may or may not need chemo, it depends on the stage of his cancer. If his cancer is stage-3 then he should be seen by a medical oncologist. Stage 1 and 2 can be managed well by ENT specialist alone. ...Read more

Yes just search tongue patch surgery. Medical docors are stitching a plastic square on tongues to cause pain when eating to lose weight. Legal how?

Tongue patch surgery: Personally, I think that's a ridiculous way to lose weight. Why not just eat less and exercise more? No one forces these patients to undergo the surgery. As a kid I used to hear 'just because someone else jumps off the root, doesn't mean you have to'. I guess some people are just desperate. ...Read more

Lisps: Don't know of any such procedure. Therapy can help with muscular aspect of speech and orthodontics or dental work may be of benefit.

I had a tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy also a uppp surgery 10 days ago. Now I feel like wire scrapping my tongue. What's going on?

Throat pain: If you are 10 days after ENT surgery you are still healing. The tissue tends to harden and then get better. The process can take a few weeks. Sounds like you had extensive surgery. I do not know if your ENT used sutures or not. You should let them know about your symptoms though. ...Read more

My daughter just had a tongue tie release surgery, and the doctor put stitches. What will happen next? What should she eat/do? She says it hurts.

Should get better: Ask your surgeon if there are specific questions.

Generally a little oragel numbing gel under the tongue as needed can help, as can tylenol (acetaminophen) alternated with ibuprofen.

The stitches are likely absorbable and will "pop" out over the next 2-7 days. If they pop sooner and leave a gap, don't worry.

It will look white-yellow for the next week or so which is normal. Then it should return to normal. ...Read more

See Oral Surgeon: It would be best to see an oral surgeon who can actually examine you and first determine whether or not you would benefit from any surgical procedure. There may be a periodontal reason for surgery as well. If needed, the os can answer all your questions better than we can.
