My son is going in for a Tongue Tie clip, basically to do a small snip under his tongue to free it up, he fed well when he was young so it never came up until our dentist noticed it with his teeth and the school speech pathologist mentioned that he is having some trouble speaking. So we decided to do this, since it's a short outpatient procedure, but is there anything that we should look for in this post op wise? Most of what I have seen and read is that there should be nothing major, and considering he was in for another outpatient surgery last year and was up and about in a day I'm not too concerned about recovery.
I figure we should make him comfy, maybe give him some quiet time and let him watch a movie until he feels better, but with mouth surgery I don't know what would be best to do. Watching for foods with acidic content or maybe too salty is on my mind, but I don't have a lot of experience with mouth surgeries. Anyone gone through this recently who might have some advice?
