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.

After tongue surgery I have develop a copper tongue. Why?

Oral hygiene: If it is cause by oral rinse like chlorohexidine, a common medicine often prescribed after any oral surgery as its side effect, there is nothing to worry about. It is also possible cause by plaque accumunation or certain medications you are taking. Please consult your dentist if that is a concern for you.

Might getting surgery for my tongue tied problem effect my speech?

Might getting surgery for my tongue tied problem effect my speech?

Usually Yes: It tends to make your speech more clear for you to speak and for other people to understand what you say. This is because your tongue can now touch the proper areas of the teeth and mouth to actually make the correct sounds possible.

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?

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.

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

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.
