Try changing the temp. For example if its cold drink at room temperature. Or vice versa. Maybe youre drinking too much at once?

afterwards i couldnt drink water either, i had to play around with how i drank it. I tried cold cold with ice made things worse, I have to drink room temp water thats been sitting on the counter over night or it wont go down good without pain. I also have issues with plain water but if i flavour it with crystal light or mio i am okay. I also did diet ocean spray cran berry juice 50-75% water and 25-50% juice and that is the only way i could drink water for the first 8 months or so. If by 10 am i havent had at least 1 glass of plain water i switch right away to flavoured water and im good for the day. at 2.5 years post op i still have to flavour my water plain doesnt hurt anymore but i just cant see to drink plain water on most days.
Water hurt me post op... I found cold water worse then warm so often drank tea as it was easier for me. Now 9 months post op I can handle water just fine and can drink more per sip even. I can even drink cold water with no issues. So yes for me with time it all got better.

Oh thank God it gets better. Looking forward to that time :)
I have not had my big day yet but I have wondered about this myself. I struggle with water even now. I love my vitamin water zero and crystal light though.
My question is do they want you to drink plain water? I struggle with that even now.
I hope it gets easier for you and hang in there!

The biggest thing for me post op was slowing it down as I like to gulp. Too much too fast and it will hurt. Pre op I liked plain water. Now, it is much easier to drink with Chrystal lite which we can have. I need half the dose though. Super sweet now.

I'm 3 years post-op and I still don't do plain water. It doesn't sit well. Newly post-op it hurt, and then it got slightly better, but not like pre-surgery. I always have a little bottle of water enhancer in my purse. I have no problems with iced coffee, frappaccinos, or other iced drinks.
