I tried a carbonated beverage, once.  Didn't bother me but it also didn't quench my thirst b/c I had to drink it very slowly and keep doing little burps.  I think I got maybe 10 sips in, lol.  I haven't been told it's harmful, just that it could cause pain/gas.

I can't drink anything carbonated. I get sick. My stomach fills with gas and I'm just in to much pain. I avoid it.

 I've seen people saying that they start back on diet sodas within a few months after surgery but I'd like to stay away from those until at least 6 months out. I got my bottle about a week ago..and I just started drinking it maybe 3 days ago..I tried two ounces the first day and when I didn't have an issue with that I upped to 4 oz..It feels good to drink something bubbly..I have it at the end of the day as my...way to go you got all your protein in today..reward..haha
