Immediately after the procedure…take occasional sips of water, or suck on popsicle or ice chips

NOTE: Progress slowly, and find what works for your body. Everybody is different.
Things to consider:
Walk it off! In the first few days after your operation, you’ll want to walk around as much as is comfortable for you to gain back your strength and prevent blood clots. Give yourself about two or three weeks to recover before doing more extensive physical exercise – and then take it slow. After four to six weeks you may be ready to resume your normal activities and a new exercise program, but consult your doctor first to ensure that your activities are appropriate to your recovery.
