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.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
