@ 2Month To 1 Year Out, How Much Fluid Can You Swallow At 1 Time



Recommended Posts

So @ 2 months to 1 year out, how much Fluid can you swallow at 1 time. At 1st it seems that at 1st you are down to very small sips at one time drinking often. So after the swelling is gone are you able to say swallow a mouth full of Water without it hurting. Also can you drink say 4-8 ozs at a time?

this worries me more than the extremely slow eating and I am currently a speed eater by nature. I drink 100 ounces per day routinely and 1/2 hour to drink 6oz w/o pain, WOW.

Well everyone will be different, but Im 2 1/2 months post op. I can now drink( not sip, sip)

From my sport bottle with zero problems.

I adore ice Water and can now manage a good swallow of it! Right after surgery I couldn't even handle the taste, let alone sipping it. I thought, oh man, I don't like my precious water!! Yipes

But now it's all good. I can drink my yummy EAS dark chocolate shakes too. I have noticed my lack of being able to handle gritty or powdery stuff. Can't hack Protein powder or chewable Vitamins, yucky

But I can take my gummy vitamins and Gummy Calcium with no trouble, and tolerate the EAS RTD shakes just fine!!

I am 7 days out and I could actually drink more on days 2-4 than I can now. It takes me about 1/2 hour for 8 ounces, but my doctor suggested I make that more like an hour so I am trying. I love my Water too and am used to drinking approximately 100 ounces per day, but that has gone down to about 80 now and I am really pushing to get that in. I don't have any pain with drinking, but I do get an extremely full feeling if I overdo it.

So when you all work out do you dehydrate too fast and poop out?

I am almost 8 months out! From 242lbs to 141lbs this morning. I'm 5'6. I can drink pretty fast, practically like I could before the surgery.

I have had no problems while working out. But sometimes in the evening after a particularly hard and hot workout (I live in New Orleans and my cardio is usually tennis outside) I find that I get dizzy when standing up to fast. I'm pretty sure it's a hydration issue so I've been trying drink more Water.

It did take all these months to get to the point where I could work out hard. My endurance was really bad before.

I can drink as if nothing happened. Funny thing though. I used to love drinking plain cold Water. Can't stand the taste of plain water now. I have to put crystal lite or something in it.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
