So before surgery I was able to brush my tongue no problem at all, now post surgery.. as soon as something touches my tongue I almost vomit. Even thinking about it makes me nauseas. I wake up like 6 times a night because my mouth is so dry. I hate it, I feel so unclean. Has anybody else experienced this ?

I have the same problem.Before surgery I had dry mouth but now after surgery my mouth is really dry especially in the morning when I brush my teeth and take my meds I almost vomit.Also I get really weak when I first get up and now for about 3 or 4 days I’ve got diarrhea and I can’t stand it

Yeah 4 months out and I always feel like a gremlin crapped in my mouth during the night. I am brushing my teeth like 6 times a day. I don't think the nasty Multivitamin and Protein Shakes help either.

Keep Water by your bedside. When you wake up, take a sip and swish it around your mouth. I have the same issue. I keep water and sugarless mints handy.

I was just thinking about the water part.The mints sound good to have during the day as long as you do swallow them though

I have had extremely dry mouth from a medication for years. Be careful because I ended up losing my top teeth because of it.

i do not want to lose bottom teeth so now I use what dental hygienist recommended for at night while I sleep. They are called xylimelts

you put one between teeth and cheek. It dissolves through the night keeping your mouth wet. It stimulates the saliva. Got mine at Amazon but there may be other places to get it.

Sounds like dehydration. Do everything you can to go to bed hydrated. Try ludens to suck on, too.

I used to use xylimelts at new but I was going through about 6or 8 a night.Think I might get them again as long asi don’t end up swallowing one

I have been using them for quite awhile and have never swallowed one. It’s hatd to explain but they kind of suction to the gum and stay exactly in place.

I use a cpap still as I have central ( not obstructive) sleep apnea as well which does not help with my dry mouth at all.

The other thing that I do as instructed by hygienist during the day is suck on sugar free sour hard candy. That also stimulates saliva production.

Due to an autoimmune issue I produce very little saliva and have permanent dry mouth. There are various products from mouth mousse, gel, toothpaste, gum, mouth wash and things like the melts that can help. For me, I sip lots of Water and swish around, occasionally I dabble in the various products but mostly rely on fluids. You could also try stimulating the mouth by running your tongue around it, especially the roof of the mouth, this helps to produce a littlle saliva too.

If you are aren't producing saliva or a lot of saliva the first step in digestion is compromised, digestive enzymes may help with that.

No, I usually let them float around and dissolve to a certain point then I spit them out. I hate the end taste of them...they turn bitter to me.

But once you move on in the diet, the dry mouth lessens. Until then, dry mouth and baaaaad breath.....I mean baaaad breath are your companions, unfortunately.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
