When I had my surgery, my tongue was so swollen that I couldn't even drink water. They said it was caused by the tube cutting my tongue. Is your tongue just sore or swollen?

  Sounds like u may have Thrush...call ur Dr so u do not get to the point of it swelling.....this can be a gradual thing or a sudden onset.....but sounds like thrush.....the Dr should be able to give u an RX to help clear it up.
