My son had his jaw broken last year. So I feel yours and his pain.
Want to see if our lessons learned can help him through this without loosing too much weight and make easier to eat.

Purchase one or several of these, wash bottle.
I don't remember the size, think it was 12oz. Bigger would be better.
Cut the pointy tip off and use some scotch bright to smooth down the edge.
This setup worked so much better for my son. The syringe was a nightmare for us. Mexican food with some beef broth to thin was his favorite. Be careful of pasta and rice, they make the drink too thick and was hard for my son to swallow. You can use them, just go light. One other tip, I found the lid on Fiesta Seasoning to have holes that were slightly smaller that the wash bottle spout. This placed in a funnel will filter out any chunks that will clog the spout.

Sorry, forgot one other tip. Get a waterpik. This will keep his teeth very clean. Doctor was shocked to see that my son did not have fur growing on the inside of his mouth.

Man thatís rough! Prayers sent for a quick recovery! Maybe grab some mass gainer mix from the supplement shop. High in carbs, protein and calories. May help him maintain his weight.

I can't thank all of you guys that are offering up suggestions here, texting me, PMing me trying to help out. I'm not sure we even need a doctor now given what TBH can offer.

I'm really humbled by the assistance. You folks are so supportive. I can't thank you enough. I really just posted to inform, not solicit info but man has it poured in!!! The suggestions will cost me a fortune but if it makes this pass more comfortably for Dane, I'm all over it.

So sorry to hear that. I loved watching my son play soccer for 14 years.
I broke my own jaw about 20 years ago by falling on a brick paver on my chin at deer camp.
(No alcohol involved). But I was knocked smooth out.
Wired shut for 9 weeks. I was determined not to lose what little muscle and strength I had.
I drank milk shakes with blue bell, Ensure, vitamins and protein powder
Actually gained weight and kept working/working out.
Yep, carried the wire cutters. Not being able to brush teeth properly
Was terrible.
Heís young and will rebound quick.
He will crave something with a crunch terribly.

Doc called today to check on him. My wife told him there had been no pain. He couldn't believe it. She told him he got up to keep playing after the impact but knew something was wrong when teeth didn't align. Doc said most people would be screaming in pain.

Something must be wrong with my kid? If he doesn't need all this liquid hydrocodone we have here, I might need a price check on the street value from some of you east Texas folks.

Thanks for the kind words.

Today is day 45 and the wires came off this morning! Doc is worried about the one tooth where the fracture went completely through the jaw. There may be a need for root canal if that thing sustained damage. He said the hygiene was impeccable as he sees patients lose teeth from this ordeal. All seems well and we are happy to have him back to normal. No one is happier than he is, I'm sure.

Time to fire up the smoker for ribs, fryer for wings and the grill for steak. While the young man maintained his weight by working his *** off with the blender and straw, he's ready for some REAL food.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. I realize many people are battling more serious things, but it's good to know we all can look out for one another regardless.

Keep him on a weight gainer protein with lots of carbs, fats, protein and high in calories

Thanks everyone. Yeah, he's planning to stay on the protein drinks in order to fight back into playing shape. He lost 6 of his 161 lb starting weight. It's amazing how hard he battled through this situation.

Lots of good protein shakes on the market. I used chocolate Muscle Milk (and still occasionally do)... some whole milk, a couple dashes of cinnamon, and it's packed with calories. These days, I use fat free milk or water, and add some instant coffee since i'm an old man who needs caffeine and fewer calories - but its pretty tasty.

Also - just a word of advice - I had reconstructive throat surgery from a rugby injury back in the day... do not... and I repeat.. DO NOT... put chicken noodle soup in a blender, liquify it, and then try to ingest. I'm still not sure how something so tasty can turn so not-so-tasty by taking the same ingredients and making them into a smoothy... holy cheet man!
