and I'm so hungry.<br><br><br><br>
I've been drinking smoothies and blended soup. It's the end of my third day and I can try some soft foods now.<br><br><br><br>
What did you eat? I really thought I would just fast and sleep. I've been sleeping a lot because I never take meds and I am on three right now. But, I keep waking up and wanting nachos<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hungry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hungry:"><br><br><br><br>
I just thought somebody might have some thoughts. I'm all out.<br><br><br><br>
The soup isn't so bad though. I guess I'll probably feel hungry till I can chew again. It's the chewing I miss.

I slept through 3 days mostly. I don't remember anything during those days. My friend said she gave me some broth and water when I was awake. Sorry I can't help.

I didn't eat much, since I was doing a lot of vomiting. The drugs they gave me made me sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:"> I think the first solid thing I ate was probably toast, but it was at least a month before I could eat properly.

I ate a lot of cream of rice & cream of wheat, with raisins that had soaked in boiled water. That was pretty filling, actually.

How about yogurt/soy yogurt or pudding. Maybe some bananas?

That's awful. Sorry to bring that up. I puked a lot with my first pregnancy, so I can totally relate!

Well, I was inspired by a thread in the recipe section. Last night I had a pumpkin milkshake made with canned pumpkin, vanilla rice dream ice cream, and silk egg nog. YUMMY and super, duper filling. In fact, I think I'll have another in a few minutes since I have eaten yet.

I've had two mouth surgeries, so I have a pretty extensive list of soft foods. I can't believe you didn't eat for three days! They gave me food at the hospital twelve hours after my jaw surgery.<br><br><br><br>
My list: mashed potatoes (or any soft potato dish, like hash browns), pudding, yogurt, applesauce, soup (you have that covered), eggs, rice, macaroni and cheese (or any type of pasta with small noodles), bread (pancakes or soft toast shouldn't be too bad), bananas...<br><br><br><br>
I can't remember what else I ate. I do know that I had a <i>lot</i> of mashed potatoes and applesauce (not at the same time!) while I was recovering from my second surgery. There are a lot of options... Just stay away from the nachos! My mouth hurts just thinking about that, lol.

Oh, and a lot of foods you wouldn't think of can be chopped small and swallowed whole. Fruits, cooked veggies... You've got to be careful, but if you have some time and are desperate for something different, you can eat almost anything if you're willing to eat a lot of tiny bites.<br><br><br><br>
I had my jaw surgery a week before Thanksgiving. I was able to eat almost the same meal as everyone else just by pulverizing it with my fork.

Maybe I should clarify. I was only sick for the first 3 or 4 days, but I had difficulty eating after that, due to pain, for at least a month. The worst part was that the painkillers they gave me never took effect because whenever I took them they made me throw up. Actually, the worst part was probably watching the Blair Witch Project while nauseated, or maybe it was just watching the Blair Witch Project.
