I didn't have it diagnosed, but it looked like it to me. Something about no chewing makes it so our teeth/mouth aren't as clean as normal. I brushed like 4 times a day. It's getting better. I'm 24 days out.

Brush a lot, keep it clean. Some of it is also that your immune system is going to be depressed for a while, because your nutrition isn't what it should be. That'll improve. As for things tasting different, a lot of people report that after the surgery. It didn't happen in my case, but I know it has for many people.

I had it. I called my surgeon and they prescribed a mouth wash. The worse part was how bad the thrush made my breath smell. It was awful! I also invested in a tongue brush/scraper...I found it at Target with the toothbrushes.

I had it. Doc prescribed clortrimazole lozenges. I had to let one dissolve on my tongue 5 times a day for 7 days.

What does oral thrush look like? Ive had the fuzzy teeth and what was diagnosed as geographic tongue has returned.

I have a hard time scrubbing my tongue due to near vomiting from overactive gag reflex.

I had this yellowish stuff on my tongue for about 2 months after surgery. It didn't matter how many times I brushed it I would still get it and finally one day it just went away. It did make my taste buds change tho I cannot drink diet drinks or sugar it makes me sick. The doctor said it was the ketosis.
