I had my surgery seven days before you, and I know that around the two week mark, give or take a couple days, the swelling peaks. So, you are going to have more difficulty swallowing for a little while. I really don't recommend pizza and salad. Bread can stick to your esophagus. (And pizza is basically bread). And salad (and all raw veggies) is still on my list of foods to avoid.
