Two weeks ago I had the right side of my tongue lasered (a third has been lasered off) to remove the squamous cell carcinoma.
This gave me a swollen numb tongue. The swelling is going down now but the tongue is still numb.
I also had sentinel nodes biopsy so am awaiting results of this. Got a nice scar on right side of my neck.
My question is......will my tongue return to normal? Or will it stay numb forever?
I have some difficulty chewing food cause I'm worried I'd bite the numb part of my tongue and possibly take a chunk out of it then I wouldn't know I'd done it. Have any of you experienced problems eating with a numb tongue?
