When can I feel better if started back drinking fluids with caffeine in it? Cause while I was sick I was drinking sprite for several weeks.
AS long as possible!: The minimum time is 24 hours, however i always recommend waiting 72 hours because if you are going to have major issues post surgery they usually occur in the 1st 24-72 hours, swelling usually peaks day 3 and then gradually starts to get better.
