I'm one week post op. I know we're supposed to stay hydrated, but I seem to have no trouble taking in fluids. I try to space it as best as possible. I just don't want to ness up

I never had issues with it either. Fluids go right through you, so there's not much chance of messing anything up. Your stomach should let you know if you're guzzling too fast. I didn't chug, but on the other hand, I didn't sip really slowly, either.

I was wondering this same thing! I’ve heard people have trouble getting down like Premier Protein or something, but I can drink it no problem. So all I’m doing right now is just making sure I’m paying attention to how much I drink that has calories vs doesn’t

I had a similar problem post surgery. After the first day or so, had no problem drinking over 64 Oz a day. My bariatric team told me not to worry about it.
The only restriction I feel with liquid now (7 weeks post op) is after I eat (even though I wait an hour after eating for drinking, it still feels like the food is still there, blocking the liquid for a bit).

In theory, is this why Soups go down easier as well? I can fill up on a couple ounces of cottage cheese but can eat (albeit slowly) a 7 oz Soup quite easily.

First two days were rough after surgery.. I would too big of drinks.. now I can easily get 90oz a day of fluids 16 days post op.. you can get your fluids in with a buillion cube drink to keep your electrolytes up, sugar free popsicles, sugar free drinks... Just always stay hydrated and you'll be fine [emoji846]
