September 9th sleeve, 3 days post op and still feeling pain [emoji24]



Recommended Posts

Hi guys, is it normal to not be able to drink 3 days pot op

My surgeon ask me to finish at least 1.5 liters of Water since day 2, but its very hard to swallow. Everytime the water passing thru my throat, it feels like my chest being pressed for at least 15 seconds [emoji24][emoji24]

Do you guys have any tips?

Hi! I had trouble drinking the first few days. Felt like I was drinking/sipping all day long but would get no where near the 2L a day my team asked me to reach (probably only got in barely 1/2 a litre total by EOD, and that was including my Protein shakes!) After about a week though, I was suddenly able to gulp Water again again.

Give it a couple more days, and I think may notice the same...

Good Luck!

try taking smaller sips.. Im 4 months out of vsg. If I take to big of a drink or to big of a bite . it hurts like hell. . I had the same issue at first so I went out and bought a sippy cup.. I used the sippy cup for 2 days. Helped me take smaller sips...

I’m 10 months post op and I STILL have to take small sips. It takes me a full work day to drink my smaller jug of water(it’s maybe 32 oz total or 24 I’m not sure) but I have to take small sips or it’ll hurt really bad. Hang in there! Congrats btw !

Woaah, nice idea to put a measurement bottle, is it advised to drink with straws?
