I was sipping very small sips and as the days went by, I took bigger sips. Now at 6 weeks post, I can drink pretty normal to what I did before but when I take too big of one, then it seems to feel 'stuck' until it goes down. I still eat with a baby spoon though. I am not trained enough and want to take a bigger bite than what I should take.
I can get almost all my water in now where before, there was no way.
Good luck on your surgery.
