Pain while drinking fluids



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am 4 days out o surgery and i am having really pad chest/stomach pain when swallowing fluids. Can anyone tell me about how long this will last? When i drink something it goes down and then feels like it is stopping midway down, then it makes a noise the air starts to come up. When the air is coming up that is where the pain is happening. I have to sit straight up and try to burp and if i burp the pain is gone but only until the next sip. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Also make sure you are not taking a mouthful....small sips 5 minutes apart. I hope you feel better soon.

This too shall pass. It gradually goes away. Just make sure sips are tiny for now. I can drink pretty much as before surgery now with the exception of Water but hope that improves soon. And that's not due to pain, just a heavy feeling in my sleeve.

For some reason plain Water is more difficult in the beginning. Try asking some crystal light, sf kool aid, or mio and see if that helps. I also mix in some Syntrax Nectars crystal sky flavor for Protein. It blends with the tastes from the other stuff and it doesn't change the texture because it's not thick. If you don't have one yet pick up a Blender Bottle.< /p>

At eight weeks out I can drink Water easily but it was hard in the beginning.

Yes i have more of a problem with Water than any other Fluid especially cold liquid hurts the most. Jello in any amount is fine doesn't hurt at all. I have been drinking room temperature Powerade zero for a taste change. It is just hard for me to get my fluids an Protein down because i know how bad it going to hurt. I do have a Blender Bottle and i use it for every Protein shake i have.

This stage will pass but will take a few more weeks. Something else might even come up but they will all disappear. I know cos I thought that I was going to die after surgery and it seems like every week something else pops up. I'm 6weeks out and no more pain except when I drink too much Water or Protein Shake. Don't worry, you will start to feel better in a few weeks but no one could say exactly how long not even your doctors cos everyone is different. I called my doctors office so much that they knew my number whenever I call. Good luck.

Remember to drink small sips and think about the end result!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
