4 days post op and I can drink a lot



Recommended Posts

Hi Pat :)

I've read many articles that liquids go down pretty easily and that liquid emptying doesn't really change from before the surgery.

I had an ESG, but I too could handle liquids very well when my sister who had the same procedure last year, wasn't able to keep down any liquids.

I was able to drink a lot as well. I think its pretty common. Just try to avoid drinking and eating at the same time once you have moved to pureed foods

I was the same way. I only had trouble with liquids the day of surgery because of nausea. After that it was smooth sailing. By one week post op I could take normal somewhat large swallows (large for a bariatric patient anyway). I am now able to eat soft foods and I have a nice tight restriction so don’t worry. I was also afraid that I had a huge sleeve or something since it was so easy to drink fluids.

5 days post op and I can drink a lot. I have no problem sipping through an 8oz cup of broth in 20 minutes. I haven’t felt full from the liquids but I do t have much of an appetite either. I could go for some spaghetti though 😀

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
