    Soft/ Liquid Diet after After Wisdom Tooth Extraction

    Primal Fuel
    Had my upper right wisdom tooth taken out last night. Now, I'm supposed to be on a liquid/ soft foods diet high in protein until Saturday evening. Apparently, I'm also supposed to avoid hot liquids, as they could dissolve the clot. I need help doing this, because short of smoothies (it's cold out there), bone broth, and gazpacho with protein powder, I have no clue how to do this.

    Are warm liquids an option? Cooled soup/stew with super soft/over-cooked veggies? Creamy mashed tubers?

    I'm thinking warm is ok, just nothing too much aove room temperature. The other issue coming into play is that the Vicodin makes me dopey as hell, so something that requires a lot of thought and effort is probably out. I've got taters, though, I may boil and mash them. I think I should be able to tolerate an over easy egg, those are pretty soft.

    I'm hoping that people come in with more ideas than eggs... just because I had oral surgery when I was 13 and basically lived off of eggs for several days. I developed an aversion to eggs after that, couldn't eat them regularly for years. I'm sure you won't have that problem, and I certainly don't now (eat them practically everyday for breakfast), but it's something I'm wary of. If I ever had oral surgery again, I would schedule it so I could plan ahead for meals and eat ABSOLUTELY NO EGGS. haha

    I may make lasagna soup and make sure the meat is really broken up before it goes into the slowcooker. I could do soft/ liquid, but the high protein is what throws me.

    were there any guidelines on what 'high protein' means? my mother in law got the same recommendation from her doctor once after a surgery, and it turns out he wanted her to have a cup of greek yogurt or two throughout the day.

    Huh. No, I didn't think to ask. I was thinking " higher than usual," which for me is usually 100-120g (lean mass near 95-100 lb), so bump it up to 150g/ day or so. I know the reasoning is to help the socket and such heal more quickly, so more than usual made sense to me. For all I know, my usual protein intake may be enough.

    Somewhere in the recipe forum I have a key lime pie protein pudding/mousse posted. I made it for hubby when he had his wisdom teeth out. You could do regular protein shakes, too.
