How long it took to eat real food after upper jaw surgery?
- Hey everyone,
I am suppose to be having upper jaw surgery done on june 9th, my mom is
freaking out about this whole surgery so is making me nervous but I am
also exicted. I was wondering how long did it take to eat real food
after having upper jaw surgery?
- After a couple weeks after surgery, I could eat aything that I did not
have to chew. I don't think that I was allowed to chew for almost 2.5
or 3 months.

- Everyone's experience is different and I had lower advancement; I
wasn't eating "real food" until 2-3 months. Good luck...it will be
over before you know it and the first few days will suck, but it will
be uphill from there....! Just keep a sense of humor and be
patient....in no time, you will be back to eating normal and relieved
that it's all over!!
- I had my surgery on April 9th and I still have to swallow liquids. The
tissue inside my mouth is very sore still. However, I eat the same
food as others with the exception of anything hard like a raw carrot
-- I just have to put it in the food processor and I add a little
water. Its not much fun eating mush but you get used to it.
Good luck with your surgery --- the first few days are rough but you
do get better little by little after that.
