This is interesting, for sure. I couldn't get enough water soon after I was awake enough after my surgery. The colder the water, the better. I've never had any problems eating or drinking anything except peanut butter. While I'm certain we all get the same welcome relief, it's a curious adventure to see how different (yet the same in some ways) our bodies have handled this procedure.
