Soft cold foods

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
So post oral surgery I'm supposed to stay away from hot foods for 24 hours. I've had cold cooked pasta and jelly.

Any ideas on what else I can eat that's tasty? We're about to go to the shops but don't know what to get.

I'm lactose intolerant so can't do anything dairy.

That's a difficult one with staying away from dairy. How about Jello?

My husband had oral surgery a couple of months ago and he ate the following, progressively in this order:

chicken broth
jello
tomato soup
potato soup
pudding
mashed potatoes

All soups and broths were popped in the microwave just long enough to make them not gross and then he wasn't allowed to eat them until they were much cooler.

Then we progressed into eating Kraft Mac and Cheese, but if you're lactose intolerant that's probably not an option...

I remember years ago when I had my oral surgery I used it as an excuse to live off of soft serve ice cream for a few days.

I had all my top teeth pulled almost 2 years ago and ate nothing but Jello and Ramen Noodles before and after the surgery.

There are brands of lactose free ice cream that you could try, I love it

Bloody Americans... jelly is jello in my country So it's "jello" I'm eating already.

I'll try finding some non dairy pudding, and maybe soy/fruit sorbet.

Noodles!!! Chinese, Japanese - Soba in Miso is served cold, and if you can find it, cold chinese stir fry...

This smoothie makes you feel good.

2 frozen ripe bananas
1 cup berries, peaches, or mango
1 cup Rice Dream
1/2 cup apple juice
2 Tablespoons soy protein powder

Combine in a blender until smooth. Yummy and sweet!

Cheers, from

Mmmm that sounds great!! I now have to check which pills I can have with food, and which I can't take with food!

I have antibiotics, painkillers, anti-inflammatories, Vitamin C, Vitamin D AND arnica pills I have to take. Plus my regular heart tablets... I'm going to rattle...

I'm getting a dental implant, and 6 months ago I got a bone graft from another oral surgeon (who I didn't like, so changed), and the bone graft is supposed to hold the implant. When they went in they saw the bone graft didn't work (I'm so glad I didn't go back to the other guy), so they had to another bone graft (bone from my sinus cavity), a tissue graft (from the roof of my mouth), and THEN do the implant!

So we can suffer together! They put me under light IV sedation, so I kept waking up and could watch them doing it, and I remember drilling type noises, but that's about it. Sounds bad, but I feel much better after light IV than a heavier anaesthetic!

Luckily all my work was done at the front of my mouth, so that hurts, but at least I can chew at the sides of my mouth!

I was doing fine until I threw up about 15 minutes ago... I'm supposed to stay away from hot food, but I think I'll make some soup and just cool it down and have that.

I've never had soy yogurt, but you can add a couple of tablespoons to the smoothie to help with digestion while on antibiotics.

My husband had lots of these smoothies (along with blenderized meat/stews/veggies) when he had jaw surgery. It has no refined sugar, to help with the healing, and packs a lot of easily-digested nutrition. And it's so good!

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I second that one. Soy Deliscious has a "peanutbutter chocolate swirl" flavor that is incredable and dairy free! Also there are lots of dairy free sherberts.....and even though Godiva has milk in their ice cream- i've found that it doesn't upset my stomach at all when I eat it. ( I am lactose intolerant as well). Also, try some eggs (just make sure they're not too hot,) bananas, baby food (the fruit flavors are always yummy!) ,nice broths....just not too warm, jello, dairy free pudding, some nice cooked pastas with italian dressing & soy parmesean or other seasoning on them (serve chilled like you would a pasta salad), some nice pumpkin bread or other soft breads that you can eat without having to heat up. Feel better soon dear!

Are you still throwin up? How are you feeling tonight?? I hope you're feeling better

I am also lactose intolorant but having a bit of milk in my tea or a slice of cheese in my sandwich doesnt upset my stomac so much

but if i want it in huge portions, then i alternate between soy yoghurts, and lactose free products, it does taste funny when you first try it, but after a bit you get used to it..

I keep waking up, mainly because I'm uncomfortable rather than in pain. Lily and Smudge are snuggled up next to me though, and whenever I wake up Lily comes up to my chest purring and mewing at me until I get sleepy, then she goes and settles with Smudge again

My face feels a bit swollen, but I tell you what - it takes away the "laugh lines" from my face. I feel so young!
