    Soft Liquid Diet After Operation.

    Hi, I had an operation to repair my cleft palate on Tuesday. Very bloody/sore surgery and came home on Thursday.

    I will be this soft liquid foods for two/three weeks, I am already struggling with it. Does anyone know any good recipes for soft liquid foods. I am basically living on yogurts, soups and smoothies.

    Thanks.

    If it won't be for long just get a hand blender that you can get for a tenner or even less

    You could consider nutritionally balanced 'Category D' soft meals from Wiltshire Farm Foods: http://www.wiltshirefarmfoods.com/fr...ls-ready-meals

    Or, see if your GP will prescribe the appropriate Fortisip nutritional drinks: http://www.nutridrinks.co.uk/Fortisi...-products.html which I lived on for weeks,

    and also Fresubin Creme desserts: http://www.fresenius-kabi.co.uk/4750.htm (although my pharmacist can only obtain the 2kcal Wild Strawberry flavour at present).

    Good luck, and wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Thank you. Wiltshire Farm Meals look delicious meals. I think I will take a proper look. I am seeing my GP tomorrow, so I will ask about the Fortisip nutritional drinks etc. i

    Thanks.

    Shyster - sorry can offer advice on meals but wanted to say good luck with yoour healing and hope its quick for you.

    I have had a couple of ops on my mouth and jaw and know how miserable it can be and how boring the diet can be. I ended up putting squirty cream on everything to get taste - not recommended though as I put on weight haha x Hope you find something suitable.

    Take care PBx

    Ha, thank you.

    It is damn hard, I used to having over 2000 calories a day, I am probably down to under 900. I love my foods!

    Hopefully the stitches will dissolved soon and I sure I will cope somehow. x

    I am feeling gutted and down, as I can see a small fistula hole in the soft palate area.

    I am not seeing the consultant till November. I read online that fisula can close on it own, after cleft palate surgery. Who know! Just typical.

    Sorry for ranting!
