What is Simple Ranula?
Ranula is known as the crystals/stones produced below the tongue. This crystal may be a in hard format, can be lumpy too. I have been suffering with this tongue Ranula problem since 2009. I thought it will be treated by medicines. I have been prescribed by famous ENT ear, nose, throat specialist some medicine as
- Amoxi-Clav 625mg By Sandoz that contains Amoxycillin + Clavulanic acid for one month, (As I remember Augmentin DS by GlaxoSmithKline has the same salt).
- Lincomycin 250 mg for two months.
- Diclofenic Sodium two times a day as a pain killer.
But results were only the shrinking the stone (Ranula) hence making it hard only, but not dissolving or shrinkage the stone.
Final Ranula Treatment:
After the long treatment with antibiotics and consultation with several ENT specialists (Most of them advised surgical removal of Ranula) I decided to go with Ranula surgery. My ENT specialist a really generous guy operated my Ranula and removed it in 17 minutes approx. This Ranula was causing the dryness of my mouth, less saliva in mouth. Now I have enough lubrication in my mouth.
Here are the Ranula Pictures that removed just below my tongue that was causing the blockage of saliva in my mouth, Now I get enough lubrication while chewing my food. This Ranula was casued by chewing betel nuts like Rasili, Rasily Supari and Tulsi.
A quick note:
Ranula surgery is pretty much simple, don’t be afraid of it. After lignocaine injection 1cc it was like a charm no pain etc. After operation I was advised to apply Enziclor Gel and use branded mouth wash regularly for one week.
