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!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
