Stick with it. Sip, sip, sip all day long. Also do some sugar free flavored popsicles, they're lifesavers at getting the liquid down easily . They count as liquid.

I found that I enjoyed sucking on ice cubes right after surgery, and that I was better able to drink if I kept the beverage in my hand or right next to me. Because it hurt to move and stretch, it was hard if I put it a few feet away.

Also, try different beverages (plain Water no longer tastes good to me!) and different temps. I liked my drinks very cold, but some people prefer them hot/warm right after surgery. Try hot herbal tea or broth for example.

Looks like others have it covered. I will just add that it gets a little bit better each day. Hang in there. 👍

Ice cubes are great I agree with that and it gets the eating and crunchy need to stop. I feel that cold things made my tummy feel better like maybe helped with swelling? But also sugar free Gatorade is awesome I would dilute my Water with it to get more in but I drank it cold cold cold with ice
