Can vetrans gulp water???



Recommended Posts

Question for you vetrans out there. I am getting sleeved onthe 21st (cant wait). I am absolutly perfectly fine with never being able to eat large amounts of food again. No problem. I am a little worried about drinking though. There is nothing I love more (okay, maybe a couple of things) than going for a hard hike in the sun and guzzling cold Water. I know that I can only take little sips at first, but will I be able to take a big gulp of water some day?

Thanks

Stacey

Ahhh... good to know. It's just so satisfying to fully quench your thirst

I'm two weeks out today and from a week ago to now is even way different. There is a tricky learning curve though and no matter how much people tell you to sip you will mess up for a little while until you figure out what a drink is really like for you. I do best if I always have my Water with me and then I don't get so thirsty that I feel like I need a huge gulp.

Trust me Stacey, once you "feel" your new sleeve, you will NOT want to gulp anything again. . . .right now it's hard to explain, but you'll see. . . i was a major gulper and loved gulping EVERYTHING wet. . . including sodas. . . now i'm such a lady, i sip everything in moderate amounts, i sip tea, don't do sodas anymore, and sip my waters. . . you'll understand about the 2nd day of surgery . . . good luck. . . and all the best on your journey

13 months out right now- nd yes.... I can take "bigger drinks"... but can't guzzle if you know what I mean?

But MUCH better than when I first got sleeved!!!

I can guzzzle just as much Water as I could before surgery. I don't sip at all. I drink all I want all at once. I will be 1 year post op at the end of the month.

I can take about four swallows in a row...then I have to wait a bit before taking more. It suits me fine.

AT seven weeks I can guzzle really well. I've been able to drink a 16 oz cup of tea in a short time since around week 4. I like getting it in while it's hot so I have to drink fast.
