Following a procedure, it may be difficult to enjoy certain foods for a period of time. It is crucial to follow the post-operative care instructions to avoid any discomfort or complications.
It is important to avoid slurping, sucking, or chewing on the affected side. Otherwise, there may be a risk of re-opening the wound. This may lead to bleeding and infection, thereby delaying the healing process. Although you will be limited to soft foods, it is still essential to maintain a nutritious and healthy diet. We understand that this temporary diet can be difficult, which is why we have come up with some simple and delicious suggestions for you.
