I have cirrhosis and about eight weeks ago, I got what I assumed to be a couple of canker sores on the insides of both cheeks. After doing what I could for old fashioned remedies and my sores worstening, I broke down, went to my doctor's office and saw one of the nurse practitoners. He gave me prescriptions for two different mouth rinses. They didn't work and it kept getting worse. Saw my dentist who examined and took loads of photos. He was totally puzzled and sent me to an oral surgeon who put me on steroids. There seemed to be an improvement, but after two days off, they came back with a vengeance and now include my tongue!
They are now talking autoimmune diseases and even a possibility of cancer. Has anybody else experienced anything like this? Maybe not even liver related...just wondering.
Getting sick of sucking pureed food through a straw.
Happy New Year, Everyone!
