Hi all! I’m 1 week post op today and I’ve gained 3lbs. Heartbreaking besides that I can’t get in 64 oz or even close without feeling like my stomach is about to burst. I’m very full. It’s 4 pm I had 8 oz of water, 8 oz of broth 1/2 of a protein shake and 1 popsicle. I’m for sure I can’t get anything else down. I’m miserably full. How do I manage this? The fullness and get in 64oz. Yes I sip and I use the 1 oz cups.

I feel your struggle.  I’m almost 4 weeks post.  I’m still struggling with fluids.  I’m trying to set short term goals like 20 ounces before lunch and 20 in the afternoon.  My biggest struggle is getting anymore than 40.  I’ve been heating organic non caffeinated tea but drinking slightly warm.  Helps a little

Hi there! I’m 3 weeks today and I feel 100% better. It doesn’t feel like I had surgery a few weeks ago. The first 3 days was tough to drink much. I’m not quite at 64oz but I can get close now. The protein shakes take me longer to drink and I try to drink two before drinking any other fluids. I also set my timer for every five minutes just to take a few sips. Simone advised me to make popsicle sticks out of protein shakes. I’m going to try this today. Weight loss is slow I’m down 6lbs since surgery but I’ll take it. I hope to loss more. Thanks for responding. I like this forum. I’ll learning a lot reading what others have to say. Good luck to you.

I just found this support community and your post was the first one to catch my eye. I’m not gonna a lie, the word nightmare scared me, but I’m glad I read the post to find out that you’ve overcome that hurdle! Makes me less afraid 😊

Sorry to scare you. I feel so good now and really feel like a different person. I’m walking more I’m up to 46 minutes 3 times a day. I just got on mushy foods. Be careful not to over eat when you move to mushy foods. I’m really feeling like this is the best decision I’ve ever made 3.5 weeks and 30 lbs down. I could not have done this on my own. Good luck to you.
