    I'd also like to be able to eat something solid, since I've been craving a goddamn sandwich since I got it done.

    I noticed that my tongue is obviously swelled, I've been on tylonel since I've had it done. I've always been using a salt water based mouthwash to speed up the healing.

    I just talk a little funny, partially due to the swelling, and partially due to the starting barbell being huge.

    How long until I can talk normally again and eat solid food?

    I don't think you'll talk normally for about a day to a week or so. You learn how to form words around it.

    ...best tip though, switch to a 1/2" length tongue ring after it's healed (2-4wks). When I did this my speech went completely back to normal.

    use advil or midol instead of tylenol. it'll alleviate the swelling better

    Yeah, the part that is driving me insane is how fucking long the barbell is. The girl said I can switch to a much shorter one in a week.

    The swelling has gone down a very noticable amount since this morning.

    soup FTW! soft squishy stuff is your best choice for now. pastas, soups, rice, mash potatoes, baby food.

    Well, I just ate a chicken sandwich and fries with relative ease. I did bite down on the bar a couple times though :hs:

    I think it should be back to normal by tomorrow or so as far as eating and pain goes. My speech seems to be getting a bit better too.

    Feels much better today. I can eat painlessly save for the fact when I'm not paying attention and chomp down on the barbell :mad:

    i was so fuckin proud of myself when i could finally eat a burger when i got my tongue done.
    dont rush it, if you try to eat food before you are ready, you will fuck shit up bigtime. try to avoid putting much suction force on your tongue. its not good.

    Definitely be careful when eating...I chipped (very small chip) 2 of my molars with the long barbell.
