i had a tongue biopsy done on Sunday (3 days ago) as my dentist found an opaque lump under my tongue and i was referred to an oral surgeon for an immediate biopsy. I am now in so much pain. I have five stitches and Lots of ulcers that are around the wound. I can barely speak and eating hurts so much. My cheeks keeps twitching, ear aches and even my teeth hurt. I have to wait six weeks for the results which is over Xmas. I'm so frightened. I'm a single mum with two teenagers and I'm 39. I smoked for years but haven't for at least two years.
painkillers aren't helping and I'm still working full time as a nursery nurse while in lota of pain. I don't want to worry my kids but needn't advice x
