Oral Surgeons Followup Visit This Morning


This morning I went back to my Oral Surgeons office for a followup visit. It has been approximately 10 days since the surgery.
I have still been experiencing some pain in my tongue at the surgical site along with left ear pain. Both have subsided as the days have gone by and hopefully they will be completely gone in a weeks time.
The biopsy results came back as follows:
The sore in question and surrounding area had some minor precancerous activity and will be monitored over a period of time. Any new "outbreaks" would most likely require more surgery and removal of the "bad" areas.
I also need to find a dentist that can grind down the ridges of my wisdom teeth on the left side of my mouth so that it will minimize the contact that those ridges have on my tongue, which is causing irritation and sores on the left side of  my tongue.
All in all...not a bad report. It sure could have been a lot worse.
I will be going back to my oral surgeon in a little over 3 weeks for another followup.
I have a followup visit with my ENT..Eyes, Nose and Throat doctor this next Monday to go over the biopsy report with him.
