That depends on what your body can handle. Pre-op, I think I was constantly sipping/drinking/eating popsicles. Post-op, I had to make myself drink, but I did it. If your surgeon didn't give you any restrictions, then keep going on the liquids until you're satisfied.

My meal plan right after surgery (5 days out) was full liquids, so I was only supposed to have 2 oz of the "full liquids" 3 times daily (cottage cheese, soft cheese, applesauce, SF pudding, etc.). I was allowed to have SF popsicles and SF non-caffeinated beverages during the day and between meals.

My patient packet basically says that if I don't stick to the pre op diet, my surgery may be rescheduled or canceled. That's my motivation right there. For me, it's all about motivation. If it's up to me, I fail. Under threat of no surgery, --or in the post op situation, illness-- I'm all over it. I think you will do fine knowing that it's just what has to be done. You may surprise yourself! Just go ahead and see what you're capable of!! ;)

I was very confused about this post-op in the hospital. All I'd heard was sip and no more than an ounce but my nurses kept getting on my case about not drinking all they were putting in front of me. My first meal was a little cup of apple juice, a Popsicle, a Jello and about 1 cup of broth. What on earth was I supposed to do with all that? I didn't tolerate sweet at all but they finally told me that I needed to sip but that liquids go right through so I should take in as much liquid as was comfortable. So my approach was take it slow but I stick with the 64-100oz of liquids per day.
