I'm a little fuzzy on how long we need to ingest 60 oz of water/fluid daily post surgery. Can someone enlighten me please?

its a life sentence, However it may not be 60 You can do a hydration test and back it down a little. For example I only drink 48-50 oz now a day and I am fine and hydrated. But this is a long way out Many months.

Also if you hate Water as much as I do, eat a Soup for lunch every day it has water, Suck on a popsickle lots of water in that, offsets the drinking it a little

yes - for life. Although even non-WLS people should be doing that, too. A lot of health people recommend eight cups of Fluid a day - so that's 64 oz.

Keep in mind that fluids in (some) food also counts as Fluid so it doesn't mean 64oz of clear Water

FOREVER... for me, I start retaining Water and will gain a few pounds if I don't get in at least 65oz a day but I function best drinking more than 85oz and will lose that water weight taking in 100oz. But I count my Protein Drink, coffee, tea and water. If I have a glass of wine, I count that too but it is a small price to pay for feeling so good.
