Sorry for the late reply! Ah I had my wisdom teeth removed surgically and they nipped a nerve which made me lose feeling in the bottom half of my face for months so I know how you feel lol. Hmm you've actually put me at ease! I thought it was going to be in a tonne of pain for months! Thanks =)
About 6 weeks,and that was just the lower jaw. I honestly wasn't in any pain except when I yawned, but turned out I was intolerant to the painkillers,so it was just as well really :P It was okay as soon as I was off the liquids and onto less elastics on my teeth. Jaw still clicks sometimes though,and g
for months I couldn't feel one tiny bit on the right side of my lip,which made me look like a right idiot trying to drink with half of it going down my face! :P
Ah you absolute angel! Thanks for the list! How long were you on fluids for? I was told around 6 weeks as they're breaking my lower AND upper jaw :/. Were you in a lot of pain post- op? And for how long? How long did it take for you to fully recover? Sorry for all the questions, I've never come across anyone who's had it done!
8. Frubes seem like a good idea for on-the-go, but they're only 25 calories each. Seriously, you need to count your calories... but in the opposite way to everyone else. For example, Heinz tomato soup is now 'low-fat'. You need like 4 cans a day to get a decent amount of calories. u_u
9. In the summer, NOWHERE sells soup if you're going out.
10. Costa Coffee giant hot chocolate makes a good option if you need some liquidy calories on the go,though Lucozade, too.
11. Smoothies need EVERY SINGLE BIT OF PULP taken out of them.
12. Once you can have more stuff, it tastes heavenly. *__* I started off with Cheetos, chopped up noodles and cake (not at the same time, ofc).
13. My doc reccomended 6 meals a day. Means basically you're drinking all day long, but it does beat how bad I was in the beginning
Oh, and.. yawning hurts. ¬.¬
Hope any of this helps Feel free to ask anything

Okay, here's what I learnt (in order of me remembering it >.<)
1. Tomato soup is not thin enough. Add lots of full-fat milk. Even then, it will probably still be too thick 'till you get the plastic thing taken out on your first post-op appoinment. I have no reccomendation for what to have until then, as I survived on water and couldn't move for about a week. I tried thinned tomato soup at this point, and well.. the result wasn't good.
2. Always have someone able to hear you until you're NOT going to get into serious trouble. (spoiler here 'cause its' kinda ugh.)
Spoiler:ShowI was drinking my tomato soup,as you do, when I was sick. There are NO gaps for sick to go through, trust me on this.. scariest experience of my life as I was choking and couldn't get anyone's attention as my folks are out and my brother had his music loud.
3. Yoghurt mixed with full fat milk is suprisingly yummy. I used Petit Filous kids one..
4. Basically, milk is your friend 'cause it's calorific. xD
5. After a while, I was reccomended to literally drink chocolate as I wasn't taking in enough calories. A whole GIANT bar of Cadburys a day. Not even the average family sized bar. o_o
6. It doesn't matter how unhealthy it may seem, if something's liquid enough to be drunk, drink it.
7. The stuff the hospital gives you tastes disgusting.
