Just make sure he's getting liquids afterwards. Extremely cold things don't feel good, as well as hot things. Salty stuff seemed to bother him too. His breath is gonna smell terrible for 2 weeks or more....like cow manure....lol. The first day, my son slept all day. The next day he was whiny and sore. Jello was kinda hard to swallow. Popsicles are good because you suck on them rather than swallow large bites of cold stuff. Low sodium broth seemed to be what he liked after the 2nd or 3rd day. Sorry if this is jumbled....lol. Just typing as I think. If he gets a fever make sure you call your doc....that's about all I can think of right now. If you have more specific questions, you can PM me if you want. Good luck.
