I had a partial glossectomy on July 21st. My tongue was numb for a few weeks and now I have a lot of nerve pain. If you had the same thing please tell me how long it lasted.

Hi Ariel,

Unfortunately we can't answer " how long it lasted" if someone pain as everyone is different. Nerve pain is awful so please get yourself an appointment to sort out some decent pain relief and an investigation to find out what's causing the pain.

Did you experience that sensation after your surgery?

Most of the nerve pain I have had since surgery (hemiglossectomy & neck dissection) last December has been on my neck along the scar. It is improving. Hang in there. The pain should get better as you heal.


The number of people involved in my care (@ a CCC) is humbling. Doctors, nurses, therapists, support staff, & of course, family. With everyone fighting for me to beat cancer the least I can do is fight back and win!

I didn't get any nerve pain. I was put on pregablin (part of the gabapantin group, so great for nerve pain) for a month before my surgery. I stayed on it for 4 months after surgery (a month after i finished rads). I was also encouraged to massage my scars as soon as the stitches were removed. I guess it all helped
