Welcome to the Re-Wrapped Club!
Well I have had my share of scar tissue issues, but can't say for sure if any was on my liver. I do know that my lap redo was more painful than my original, but my open wasn't any more painful than my 1st redo. I think with the redo since they have to do a lot more work we are going to have more pain and swelling. Don't be in a rush to go home if you can stay and have the pain control at the hospital.
As for your tongue, I suspect that could be from the anesthesia. I had some tongue issues like swelling and some numbness with mine, but my redoes were over 4 hours surgeries too.
Be careful with mashed taters they can pile up very easily on you at the wrap.
