Hi Ginamackey and Ratatosk,
I'm post op at day 37 and still have 6 more weeks of healing, accourding to my doc. I had post op bleeding on day 3 and thrush for 2 1/2 weeks after that so, I had to eat "soft" foods only for 3 weeks. Boy did I want meat!!! Chicken noodle soup, mashed potatoes, gravy burned my throat-even turkey gravy, pudding, jello,no citrus(orange, lemon or lime), applesauce, ice cream, popsicles, mac and cheese (put in a blender if needed), baked potatoes, soft canned vegetables (green beans, carrots, ect, NO corn) in a blender if neccessary, milk, sherbert (although it hurt my throat), canned peaches, cut into very small peices, and thin milkshakes. If you are having a really hard time, people told me to try the gerber graduates baby food. Stay away from soda pop because of the citric acid in it, tomato products of any kind, citrus fruit and of course hard items. I drank everything from a straw (and still do). I didn't try bread because I couldn't eat a very small piece of Ritz cracker. It was thick and real hard to wash down. Just in case you're wondering, I am still waiting for my taste to come back. I can only taste in the front of my mouth. things taste like cardboard except vanilla pudding (the cooked variety) and vanilla ice cream (the good varieties, Bryers, Blue bunny). I hope you both feel well soon.
