I had my surgery on 4/19/17. I have had a sore mouth and tongue. My tongue swells and I have severe pain. It burns severely and is dry. I use several dry mouth products to try and help. Well they don't do any good. The Inside of my lips get raw sore spots, too. I'm just taking a shot to see if anyone else had any problems like that.

How's your Water intake?
What surgery?
Have you talked to your surgical team?

Those symptoms can be dehydration or Vitamin deficiencies, (or diabetes, thyroid issues, certain medications, etc)

And also thrush? Your weaker immune system might have allowed it to move in and florish.
Sjogren's on the othe hand is an auto-immune syndrome, a member of the arthritis family who often co- exists with its well known cousin with the better PR coverage. And in my long long lifetime at different times I gave been diagnosed with all 3.👉😪👈

Could also be a b Vitamin deficiency. Look up folate deficiency. Let us know what your result is. The best to you. Don't ignore it.

Cranberry was used for thrush but sounds like a reaction to your antibiotics. Or are you using an under the tongue medicine?

Consult your Physician (and maybe dentist too) always, but you can try a very weak (1 part peroxide to 3 parts water) oral solution of peroxide and Water or a strong warm salt water gargle (Himalayan) .

It could be a number of problems, only a Physician will know but cleaning the area properly without destroying all of the good bacteria giving the bad bacteria a chance to proliferate could be a starting point to feeling a little better, so I would avoid alcohol based products (like Listerine original) until you have a handle on it.

I’m having these same symptoms. Will talk to my doctor tomorrow about it.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.
