cat - you poor baby!!! hope you're feeling better SOON...
as for you main question - about the after surgery sickness... you can - and should - drink the water. you'll learn soon enough about how fast you can drink it. the juice would make you sicker, and you'll soon realize to avoid it. extra vitamin C should take care of you. chicken BROTH will also be an excellent choice. so will the chicken, BUT NOT TOGETHER! one of two things will happen if you eat them together: either the chicken will wash out of your system, or it will swell up and get stuck. depends on a number of factors, including how well you've chewed it.
medications usually aren't a problem, except for the first three months, when most of us aren't allowed to use aspirin or advil or motrin.
now, having said ALL THAT - i've only had two colds since the surgery, and i used to average 5-6. not sure why, but let's hope my luck continues!!!!
