Yes, it's common. During my first month, I was only able to drink the Nestle bottled Water. Also my stomach didn't hurt much if I put crystal light. On my fourth month now, I can drink any type of water now, even tap :-)

I would suggest that you go and talk to your surgeon/medical team. Being able to drink Water is essential. If there is problems it could be something physical since you are experiencing pain. Pain is a always a warning sign (except for the damn gas problem). I am about 12 days out and havnt had any problems.

Make sure you are sipping! Take one at a time. Your sip should be so small that it could rest under your tongue (in that pocket) and you could talk. Sip, hold, breathe all air out and swallow. The pressure pain comes from swallowing air and early out is very uncomfortable. One sip too many and youll get a tight pinch and a lot of pressure. Before the pinch youll feel the pressure and that's how youll know to stop and slow down. It's a lot of work to be in tune with your new anatomy and change old habits but its very much worth it!

Sip, sip, sip, don't gulp. Also try flavored water or even iced tea if you're not stomaching Water well. You can't risk getting dehydrated.

You might try room temp Water, if you have been trying it cold. Seems to go down easier with less cramping.

Or even go to warmer teas like green, decaff and herbal. Each of us is wired differently so there is no " One Size Fits All" in the pursuit of Weight Loss.😛

I had/have this issue and I'm 4 months out. I talk to my surgeon and she said it has to do with the PH in the Water so adding some lemon or drinking crystal light helps. See if it makes a difference! It definitely did for me!

Can you also drink diet teas such as Diet Snapple? It was on my list of allowable drinks. I have been mixing half diet peach tea and Water in a bottle and keep it with me on the go. For some reason, right now plain water just makes me a little nauseous unless it is ice cold. But the tea mixture or crystal light with lemon has been working.

I had my surgery on Monday and this is by far the worst problem that I had. I couldn’t drink so they kept me an extra day on an IV. This morning suddenly the pain subsided a lot. Surgeon didn’t think it was to much of an issue. But I hope it gets better for you!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
