You would become very dehydrated, which can be dangerous.. deadly even...

Do you mean if you don't sip, but take big drinks?

I'm no expert, just over a week post op, but was told it's just very uncomfortable.

I've forgotten and taken a little bit bigger drinks, and nothing has happened, but haven't taken large gulps.

You have to drink, so I'm hoping you just mean what happens if you take bigger swallows? Nothing, really. It hurts for a few minutes if you gulp a BIG mouthful but that's all. I didn't sip tiny sips for too long, and was drinking normal-sized swallows within a few days.

That's great to hear. I feel like I take pretty normal drinks without problem.

Sipping wasn't working for me at all I had to take normal swallows otherwise I'd end up dehydrated. 1 oz every 15 minutes is what my discharge instructions say but I ended up blacking out doing that so I just listened to my body and I take normal swigs really. I forgot a few days ago and woke up late night and grabbed my water bottle and starting drinking like almost chugging the Water and it didn't really hurt but it felt uncomfortable for about 30 seconds of gas moving around and then all better.

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
