Dear Jenny
I don't think that having a cup of tea or coffee with milk should be contraindicated on the 2nd day after an operation provided the patient is allowed to take fluids by mouth (this would depend on the instructions issued by the surgeon). In some cases patients who have had an abdominal operation are not given fluids by mouth for a day or so, but are kept hydrated and "fed" via intravenous drips.
Best regards
