I have always heard that one should wait 30 minutes after eating to have anything to drink. Post surgery I am always careful to take note of the time when I am done eating and not have any beverages for that time. I do notice, though, that when I do drink that my stomach rumbles and I sometimes feel a bit bloated. Should I be waiting longer before I drink? How long do you wait?
Technically, 30 minutes. But since I'm forgetful, I often forget to even note the time for at least 15 minutes post eating. I'd easily say I average 45 minutes between last bite and first drink. If its a heavy meal, I will often wait longer.

I have always waited an hour. For me now pretty much habit
