Thanks for the suggestions for mouth washes by the way - I'm sure I have some sodium bicarbonate stashed away somewhere from when I used to watch that weird house cleaning programme with Aggie and What's Her Name - memory is shot these days...

But the Orabase paste is helping, except that my tongue now seems to be cemented to the side of my mouth. Reminds me of the time when James was about 9 or 10, I took him to the dentist for a check up and unbeknownst to me,he had picked up a free sample of what he thought was toothpaste and had rubbed it on his teeth. On the way back to the car, he started making these strange strangled- sounding noises - turned out it was Poligrip denture fixative and his upper and lower jaws were bonded together. Being a good mother, I couldn't do anything for laughing, poor boy is probably emotionally scarred for life now...

Oops kids bless em. 

Baking powder is slightly less dizzy than bi carb ofvsosa as well so try that. 


Made me laugh re polident  , I liken my mouth and saliva at the  momemt t to having a  tube if super glue permanently in my mouth and trying to shove food through it is tiring. 

But roll onnFriday byhe car n us are going to spain for our 10 week trip along with lotions and potions Ensure drinks just in case bottles of  if water for the journey ,hoping to get out in bike and that saliva makes a remarkable comeback .I will  be online still,checking so keep uo the questions .

where in treatment are you kitty

I had a tongue biopsy as I'd had a sore on the side of my tongue for 4 weeks, Razz, and the pain was horrendous,the caresheet from the Hospital said to  expect some mild pain and discomfort- !! So I  googled Pain After Tongue biopsy and it led me to this Forum where I found some wonderful support while I was waiting for the results.

And then D day came - and it showed no signs of malignancy.  But the Dr couldn't sign me off as the area is just not healing and he asked me to come back in 6 weeks.

So  really I have no right to be here any  more, but the kind people on here said I should still let them know how I get on so I am still here and still getting great advice about how to deal with the soreness.

I am just blown away by how generous and kind people are, no self-pity despite the awful things they are going through. Wish I had a magic wand....

Hi Hazel

So glad you agree that Kitty should be here Happy Her experience of a very painfull biopsy is going to help others that are experiencing the same. My first two biopsies were fine so Im no help to anyone coming here for advice unless they`ve had a palate biopsy as my 3rd one was.

Ive been waiting for hospital letter for pre op check. They phoned today to confirm admission next week so the clock is tickingCry

Are you all packed and ready? Bikini, shorts, T Shirts!

Hi Clara 

more like Lycra and factor 50 is packed!! We try to cycle most days but under no illusion that I will be doing 50/75 km will settle for a steady 30 km   Factor 50 as radiotherapy caused my neck to have 3 rd degree burn so likeca baby skin.  Just pondering Wether a burka might be in orders!!! Only joking  just going to use false tan and sit in the shade will cover up as  much as I csn. Wil post photos on blog. 

Must  agree ee kitty can give useful feedback. Anyway good luck for next week k baby steps take it one day at a time  keep in touch

Clara, was speed reading and just saw Packed - Bikini, shorts and T shirts and for a moment thought this was your packing list for your surgery - blimey, I thought,  you must be having it done privately!!

Have an amazing time, Raz, and bring back the yellow jersey ( sorry, hubby is well into the Tour De France! )

It's a pity that you can't post personal pictures on here as the thought of Raz in a burka....

The Orabase paste seems to be doing the trick, far better a layer  of that  than those  pesky silicone mouth guards. A bit tricky during the day as its difficult to talk with my tongue welded to the side of my mouth, but at least my work colleagues seem grateful for the ( temporary) respite!

Hi Kitty.   Private!!!! I wish. I would have been in and out by now :-)) Me in a bikini I think the fashion police would be after me.

I wish I had known about the orabase paste, would it stick to palate do you think?

A story in papers yesterday about a woman from London having tongue cancer and story went on to describe her glossectomy etc with photos. There is a news feed on FB and people can leave comments, some comments were quite sick and obscene my daughter wouldnt let me see them. Not that I am delicate, she felt it was so awful they should have closed the comments down. Shocking to say the least!

Hi Hazel

You go for it girl ! I have been keeping weight up just in case. Well thats my excuse for ice cream, cakes and everything else. Not eating well last few weeks has made me obsessed with food.

I have relatives 70+ and yes they have foot in mouth, think they can say whatever comes into their minds. Brother-in-law said to me today "your only getting a bit off your tongue" I ended the phone call quick. I am still boiling mad hours later.

I had a mammogram done last week,wish I had`nt now. I got a re-call letter to go for more tests at breast clinic next week. I don`t think I will I`ve got enough on next week.

Any room in your car boot for a runaway.PS ive got a passportWink   xx
