Soft Food Diet
Your diet will be limited to soft foods for the first few days. Avoid high temperatures and anything too spicy. Drink plenty of liquids, but do not use a straw. Regular food intake will make you feel better and aid in a faster recovery.
Work and Exercise
Avoid any activity that elevates your heart rate (i.e. running, brisk walking, aerobics, sports, weight lifting, heavy lifting) for 7-10 days.
