Having trouble drinking Water is a common issue. I had it too, but it's much better now. It kind of feels like it's getting stuck and hurts a bit. It may help to take smaller sips. Another thing that really helped me was mixing Water and apple juice half and half. That seems much easier going down. I also found taking a deep breath when I got that 'stuck' feeling helps a lot.

It will get better every day! Be patient and kind to yourself. All the best to you!

Are you drinking cold Water? I found that I tolerate room temperature Water much better than iced or refrigerated water.

Hi there. I think this is a common issue and lasts for a few weeks post-op. I had the same problem and someone online suggested the following- exhale deeply and then swallow the water/ liquid slowly... it actually helped me. Try it.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!
