Hi guys. Sorry im asking a lot. Im a newbie.

So weird thing. I m one week post op and i can drink Water EASILY. I drink out of the bottle 3 sips in a row and i dont get bothered. I can contain 7 sips but hurts a little. Is that ok? Or might i be hurting myself? I miss water. Its life

fluids go in one end of your stomach and out the other, so you should be fine. If it hurts, slow down of course, but otherwise, you're fine.

Sounds like you're doing fine. I didnt have any issues with drinking either after surgery. The more you drink the better!

Also, dont be sorry about being a newbie. That's what we're all here for. Im sure you will "pay it back" when you get to be the veteran as well. We are never truly knowledgable and are constantly learning how to deal with all of this. So, keep asking away!

It's okay to drink a lot of Water. Your body needs it. You need to stay hydrated. Just sip, sip, sip all day long.

Sounds like you are finding your limits. Just keep sip, sip, sippin' with what works for you as long as you are getting your Water in daily.

Drink as much as you can comfortably handle. Water is good for us!

I think that’s great, I think some of us have more swelling and inflammation initially which makes it harder. Just listen to your body and don’t try to push beyond your limits or you’ll be in pain. I’ve over indulged a few times and spent an hour paving the house nauseated and sweating and in tremendous pain. Now at almost 3 years I can chug a half a water bottle on an empty stomach, I still don’t drink for at least a half hour after eating and would never chug Water until several hours after eating. You just have to get to know your body again.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
