1 week learning curve / drinking to fast

Recommended Posts

I am sure this question is a repeat but I haven't quite learned this app enough to find what I need yet. Thank you for your patience!

The new stomache is small and you can only drink a few ounces every 15 min. What happens if you drink to much Water to fast?

In my case, if I drank too quickly (which I did frequently) I would just get a wave of mild pain which told me to think more next time. I know some people will start salivating a lot and some will sick up. I imagine there are people with some horror stories, but I think most people have had a similar experience to mine. Just try to be mindful, and know that you will likely mess up a little bit here and there, but you should be fine.

LOL, it hurts. That's how you know you need to slow down or change the temp of the liquids.

You'll soon learn your own pace! Congrats on your surgery!

you will feel a deep pressure in your chest.. and it will last for about a good 30 minutes before you start to feel back to normal. FYI the same thing will happen once you move to foods and eat 3 spoons in 5 min LOL.. Speaking from experience.

Some TMI - 2 weeks after surgery I was really dehydrated and having trouble drinking because of a then-undiagnosed ulcer. But I was like WHATEVER I NEED Water at one point and drank about 30 oz in 20 min. SURPRISE DIARRHEA. Fun times.

But now, at 5 weeks, if I take a few gulps it feels a little uncomfortable. Sometimes I have to take a bigger gulp than I intended because a pill doesn't go down right or something. Or I exercise and I *need* more than a tiny sip. It's uncomfortable, but passes fast. Not something to be in the habit of, though.

As time goes on you can drink a little more frequently. For me too much and I just feel full, but I’ve pretty much figured out how much I can swallow at once. I was a gulper/chugger with my drinks and if I unconsciously drink too much I just kinda swish it in my mouth and swallow a little at a time.

My neighbor had RNY eight years ago and I’ve seen him chug a bottled Water in the summer so eventually you can do things you used to be able to do - including eating too much but hopefully by then the new habits have taken hold.

Most common experience is pain . It hurts when you take a sip that is too large. Some people also experience throwing up if they drink too much.

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
