Hello fellow sleevers,

Sleeved 2/16 and sipping constantly to try to get my fluids in. I’m on Clear Liquids only. I see a lot of posts mentioning Protein the first week. I wasn’t sure if it was odd that my surgeon just wanted me in clear liquids. How much Fluid were able to consume daily your first week post op?

Doctor plans vary, so don't be to surprised. Our goal was 64 oz of Water a day along with 60g of Protein (through shakes and such).

Immediately post op I struggled so much getting liquids down. I mean 20-30oz felt like an accomplishment the first few days. I’m at roughly 60oz now and I am 9 days post op. I’ve found it gets easier the further along you are.

For me, the biggest struggle is just being constantly aware of where my Water bottle is and having it open in front of me so I remember to sip from it. I was forgetting to drink!

sleeved 2/19 and I was only able to reach 30 ounces today. Glad to hear it gets easier as the days go on.
