SOFT????? Low Carb WOE????
« on: March 25, 2014, 03:10:45 AM »
here is a copy over from email i sent to work.....getting hazy from the vicodin....

I had oral surgery this morning on that bad tooth, and during the surgery after partial removal of the tooth, there were loud cracking sounds on my left jaw.  So the doc stitched me up with some of the tooth still left in (below the gum line) because she was concerned I may have cracked my jaw or be close to it becoming fractured.  So I was sent home with Vicodin and antibiotic and Im resting and taking the meds and changing out gauze like a good girl.   So this oral surgery area is supposed to heal up what is still left in is below the gum line and what Im supposed to do is heal and then be on jaw rest for SIX weeks!  The jaw rest is not chewing for six weeks anything chewier than soft pasta or scrambled eggs etc..so this will be interesting.  After the six weeks they the doc hopes she will be able to go back in and remove the rest of the tooth.  Fun fun fun.

okay sooooooooooooo I have soft food figured out.........but thinking about soft FTS food.  Doc said anything I eat like veggies have to be mushy like soft pasta.  I don't expect the next few days for WHAT I'm eating to be very high on my priority list, so far today I've had blue box mac n cheese, broth, instant mashed potatoes with gravy, and some cold oatmeal....all food is luke warm at this time for healing and bleeding control. 

As soon as I'm off the vicodin and back to work and back to planning ahead more than my next ice bag change, I'll need to come up with a FTS plan that does not include chewing....doc said no salad....

So I'm thinking at some point I can make some crustless quiches with mushrooms, or any veggies cut up small so they dont have to be chewed.....

I'm thinking some soups....Costco has a low carb yummy broccoli soup that will be convenient, there is always scrambled eggs...........and protein drinks.........and butter..............haqhahahaha

and..............do you have any other suggestions for me?  when i asked about cheese I was told it should be grated cheese only.  Oh, and I can't have beef, she said not even ground beef, BUT I can have baked fish...............

Oh, and nothing with seeds, so berries are out right now unless I plan on peeling strawberries (NOT!!)

So dear FTS family,  what are your suggestions? 

And Morgan, so glad you are doing well.....at the time we posted today I wasn't up to telling about this yes (I blame the meds and just feeling out of it)......but like I said earlier, I'll get this figured out and have my own whoosh to report in next week or two also....

So sad that life is literally  a pain for you.

 I would make mashed cauli and a gravy (using stock and cream).  Make  vege soup and whizz in blender.  Raspberry ice cream using frozen raspberries and cream (hand mixer only needed). There's a great recipe for pb milkshake on the forum which I planning to try which apparently is very filling.  You could make some tuna patties using the mashed caui or tuna mornay.  All very soft and easy to get down with minimum effort.  Also SF hello always good.  I'm sure others will have great suggestions also.

hi morgan -- haha about life being a pain............actually "this too shall pass"

My elderly grandmother did this thing as she became older (and dealt with dementia) before she passed away nearly 20 years ago.  If you called her, or when she approached you, or answered the door I (or anyone) would say, "Hi, how are you?" and she would answer "The Lord has been so good to me."  And I think of that so often.  I see that as she aged (with its pain and difficulties) she more and more acknowledged her blessing and that "the Lord has been so good to me."

Those were good suggestions.....I guess I need to finally try the smashed cali.....have never tried that before.  And ice cream yummm....you're right, I can make shakes with that.  And soups, great idea for making the veggie soup and blending....get the flavors -- that way I let the blender do the chewing for me.  A banana milkshake (using banana flavoring instead of actual banana) sounds good. 

Also, even though i can't chew bacon or sausage, I can MINCE them and add them in my scrambled eggs.....I can't have anything minced right now until surgery site heals over ....but then I could do that. 

Well it's time for Vicodin and an ice pack......and then more sleep.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I hope you heal quickly :) I think you and Morgan have it figured out.Beware of too much salt though not good for the raw gums while healing.If I can help you please ask. :)

Salt water rinses are good because the salt is diluted.Salt not diluted is bad,sits on the gums. ;)
