SOFT DIET INSTRUCTIONS

No using a straw for 1 week after surgery

Rule of thumb: Nothing to eat that is harder than a hard-boiled egg

Immediately after surgery: drink a cold smoothie (no seeds), milkshake, Jamba Juice, ensure type drink.  (with a spoon or straight from the cup)

Keep food/drink cold to room temp until the numbness is gone

Meal ideas for after surgery:

  • mashed potatoes
  • mac & cheese
  • omelettes, scrambled eggs
  • oatmeal, cream of wheat
  • cottage cheese, applesauce, soft fruits
  • tuna, chicken salads, soup, pasta
  • well-cooked noodles & veggies except corn
  • warm coffee or tea (NO HOT DRINKS)


AVOID ANY BRITTLE OR CRUNCHY FOODS IE: POPCORN, PRETZELS, CRACKERS, FRENCH FRIES, CHIPS

Keep the head elevated, 45’angle with either pillows or a recliner for 2-3 days to help with swelling
