I had my surgery a couple days ago and since then I've been on the liquid diet and I drink and drink all day without feeling any sort of limit. Is that normal? I'm starting to doubt that my surgeon even took my stomach out.

I feel the EXACT same way!!!!! Day 4 post op and I’m feeling totally fine(besides soreness of incisions). I’m curious to know if anyone else experienced this too!

Day 4 here and I'm taking slow sips. I get pain after drinking too quick. Like a rising painful burp, which I'm use to. Other than that, some pain on incision, ab area. Like when I'm rising out of bed.

I don't think I did, either (it's been awhile) - but you likely had some nerves cut so it might take awhile before you have feeling there again.

I was drinking Water straight away but like only one cup at a time Vs 1 bottle at a time still more than just sips even though the surgeon said only 1oz of water every hour I needed more...

Though I initially had pain on swallowing due to the swelling, I had no desire to eat or drink for days after. Remember, you’ve just had surgery & you don’t want to stress your stomach by pushing it too much. As @catwoman7 said nerves have been cut & you may not be getting the messages that you’re full or your stomach is uncomfortable yet. Take it slowly, pace yourself & follow your surgeon’s recommendations.

As you heal, you’ll find your stomach will quickly tell you what it can’t tolerate - loudly (growls, gurgles, ...) or physically (pain, tightness, vomiting,..).

You will know it as soon as you start progressing through the food stages particularly when you reach normal/solid foods. Even possibly by puree/soft foods.
