I noticed that when I was in the recovery room, ironically, the only drinks offered were cranberry juice, apple juice, Coke, and ginger ale. Because I knew that those liquids are on the IC "no-no" list, I requested water instead, which I sipped between bites of a few graham crackers. I was surprised when my nurse mentioned that only one other woman had requested water instead of the other options. (And distilled water would have been the best choice, but that was not available.) Interestingly enough, I responded really well to the procedure, but couldn't help but wonder if the woman next to me was crying from pain may have had cranberry or apple juice, instead of water. Hope this is helpful. For anyone interested, the Prelief website offers a good list of acidic foods and drinks to avoid.
