Default Stitches on tongue

Hi. So my hedgehog anointed on himself one time and I guess he poked himself in the tounge and his saliva turned a little pink. Took him to a vet and they didn't even bother checking his mouth. And said he was fine. He started acting normal so I let it go. Then we gave him a bath and he started licking the sink and there was blood building up again so I rused him to a different vet. There they saw he had cut himself and it never completely healed, so they put in two stitches and sent me home with two medications. The next day I noticed some foamy saliva (just white ish, not yellow or anything) so I called the vet and they told me it was normal because the antibiotics and other medication doesn't taste very well. They told me if I saw any extreme blood or anything to worry. But ever since he has constantly been foaming. He doesn't want to eat anything but he comes out at night and runs on his little wheel. Today is the second day since the procedure. Do you guys agree this is normal? I'm just really worried about him

If he's not eating you need to start syringe feeding him right away. He might be foaming because of the discomfort from the stitches in his mouth. His mouth might feel weird with the stitches or be sore and that might be why he's not eating.
