My little girl is 5months old..I have noticed her forked tongue for several months now. I did not think anything of it until my mother who has been a nurse for 30+ years pointed it out. Her tongue cannot stick out past her gums and she does have problems eating and everytime she smiles you can see that little pice of tissue pull her tongue and make the fork in it very large.. almost looking like a snake.. she will probably have to have surgery but my question is how bad is the surgery? and recover time? what if i choose not to do surgery now? is it better now when she is little or wait until she is a little older?View Thread
