you know there is always more to the story than that right??? well... I get these bad bad mouth ulcers after being intubated or "put to sleep with the breathing tube"... and occasionally I get them after dental procedures.. I think they are called apthmous mouth ulcers and they commonly occur with immunocompromised people. Do any of you get these? WHat do you do for them? I have had one so large one time after dental work that I lost the entire inside of my cheek... it just sloughed off... this time I have a big ulcer right in the inside of my lip and it growing,.... I went by my surgeon's this morning and he prescribed Magic Mouthwash... it course has to be compounded andwon't be ready til about 3..... my luck! I love~ my illness...... and I love ya'll too cause you people understand!!!!!!!!!!!!
