Thanks for your response. I am sipping however there are times where i’m so thirsty that I gulp and the pain in unbearable.
I realize that my insides are still healing and I need to keep sipping for a bit. I am just wondering if this pain will slowly go away.

I do believe the pain will go away as long as you remember to sip. Gulping may always hurt.

It hurt me the first month. I'm almost 4 months post-op and can drink/gulp normally.

I’m also 4 months post sleeve and I second what gaby says.

The first 2 weeks post sleeve I felt like someone had punched me hard in the solar plexus every time I swallowed. Didn’t matter if I drank slowly or faster, it just hurt really bad.
From weeks 2-4 that feeling had settled into a vague discomfort and after the first month I can’t recall it doing that ever again.

Now I still get pain if I try to chug more than 4 ounces at once or If I drink too soon after eating, but it’s a different kind of pain

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
