Whenever I try to bend the string and return to the starting position the other strings that I touch on the way up make noise. I've tryed to mute them but then it throws my fingers out of whack and I screw up.
Any suggestions?

I had the same problem for a while, then I figured it out. Watch some of the solo videos and you'll see the index finger used as a "bar" on bends. It's not pressed down, just sitting on the strings. When you do your bend, the only string that will ring is the one that is pressed and the others will be muted by your index finger. It was really easy to do once I noticed it.
