In brief: Same as kids
If you've had your tonsils completely out, you have a raw surface in your mouth.
We tell people to eat a soft diet with minimal chewing so that there is less risk of encouraging bleeding from the raw muscle in the back of the throat. Concentrate on making sure you get enough fluids since that's way more important in the beginning. Also, don't forget your pain medication!
