Is it just me or does it hurt drinking Water? If i drink crystal light it doesn't hurt but its to sweet for me. Im normally a major Water drinker but ever since i got my surgery, drinking water feels like swallowing rocks.

Yes this happens to a lot of post surgery people. I'm 3 1/2 months out and I have to either add something like a flavoring or drink it warm so it is not so uncomfortable going down. I JUST started drinking alkaline water and IT GOES DOWN SMOOTH with NO PAIN! It's actually softer than plain water and I don't have to add anything to it. You should try it.

Yes, what Mrs. Hayes said. Warm Bone Broth or warm decaf/herbal tea.

It felt like consuming aquarium gravel - it gets better. Make a pitcher of infused Water - a couple berries, slice of lemon, or mio drops helps. It takes awhile to be able to do more than sip, but you will get there.

Thank you guys so much. You know what's crazy, I'm 6 months post op and it's still the same. I realized that i will never be able to gulp Water again. Alkaline here i come

Nor will I and sad to say I am still farther out. Frustrating part, my Bariatric Clinic practices Benign Neglect at this point, at 10 months for them, the thrill is gone, out of sight, out of their minds. I'm 50 miles away, THEY CANT HEAR ME! Local hospital here regards me as a purple spotted giraffe, interesting but have no real advice. Like many others in the Animal Kingdom, interesting but no real clue to help me. If this is the restriction they talked about for RNY it can take a flying leap, I never have thirst satisfaction.

Ok update, Drinking Alkaline Water at room temperature works wonders. Thank you sooooooooo much for that advice.[emoji6] I still have to take my time and drink it but at least it's not hurting and it doesn't feel like the water is sitting in my chest.

Broth makes me so thirsty. Is that weird? I'm going to get herbal tea and try that as well

Mio really helps me out. I can only occasionally do plain Water.

It's not weird at all. Check the sodium in the broth. A lot of broths have a lot of salt. Maybe this is why it makes you thirsty?

My bet is that it is! When you read labels it can be a shocker. What you always thought was Good For You isn't. That's why making items yourself is superior, you can control seasonings, and especially. sodium content. Did you even figure out why we have such horrid levels in commercial foods? It is so they will stay shelf- stable plus like carbohydrates we learned to ❤ them as babies or Toddlers, by the time kids start school their tastebuds are all screwed up, that's why they waste so much food in school lunchrooms, they are looking for Fritos, Potato chips, pretzels and soda pop. They same stuff we, as parents, fed them as a reward .
Billy stop banging your sister' s head against the wall and we'll go to Micky D's. Do you want,to stop at Dairy Queen for ice cream after? Oh yeah, I was as bad as everyone else, but you get desperate to lower the screaming noise level to a muttered quieter level. And you do your best to keep them from annihilating each other! Isn't that being a GOOD PARENT?
