I bend a LOT, so I always put some Nut Sauce i(unfortunate product name) in the the nut slots when I change strings. Get some off Amazon and put it in the nut slots. Try doing a bunch of bending and see if it stays in tune. If so either polish out the slots with a fine file, or have a tech do it if you're not confident with tools. As dave said the first thing to do is the capo at the 1st fret trick which eliminates the nut. If it's still going out of tune turn your attention to the bridge. Also, if you can, post some closeup pics of the nut and the bridge with the strings removed or pushed out of place so we can see the condition of the slots.
