It will gradually get better! My lisp was caused by the roof of my mouth being swollen. It was really bad for the first couple of weeks but now you can't even notice it. It definitely goes away by time.

The switchover from liquids to solids is amazing, you'll be surprised at how much you'll miss real food! At the moment I eat just about anything apart from food that's rea...

I had both upper and lower jaw surgery and was kept in hospital for two nights.... But I guess it depends on what sorta surgery you're having.
