i tried some gishy goo on my new lingual hook, because my tongue was hurting, but it was still sore from the elastic slicing into it. then my elastic popped off last night when i was out and about, and i decided "maybe i'll just leave it overnight so my tongue has a chance to heal" (previous inside-of-cheek sores usually got better after a "night off," and i wouldn't even need wax after). but my tongue is still sore! it's ok as long as i don't eat or speak, but as soon as i try to do anything, yikes. i'm going to give it till tonight before i put the elastic back. crossed fingers.
