My suggestion having coming off the injuries you've sustained is to start slow and build from there. Easiest thing for you to do is get you some different size hand held weights or kettle bells. With these you can practically work every muscle group with a little resistance. Push ups and squats are two well rounded exercises that work a number of muscle groups.
As far as food and supplements go. You really need to concentrate on getting as protein as possible. Since you can't eat solid foods yet I would suggest getting a good whey protein powder. I wouldn't go with a weight gainer slimply because it's loaded with sugar and calories and since you won't be doing heavy resistance training, it will just make you fat. Casein protein powder is also very good and it releases protein slowly so it's good to drink before bed. This may sound crazy but baby food would also be a good way to go. It's loaded with vitamins and minerals and easy to consume. I would recommend getting some creatine and HMB. These two combined will stop muscle lose and aid in gaining back muscle you have lost. Another good idea would be to get a testosterone booster, especially with your age and the injury sustained, it is most likely low. There are many good ones available that will boost your T levels naturally so no need for anything synthetic.
Good luck I hope this helps, if you have any questions feel free to message me.
