Did you habe to take omeprazole post-op? If yes, for how long, & how did you take it before being able too swallow a capsule?

I'm 9 days post-op, & able to drink regularly, not guzzling, but way more than sips. Could this cause damage? Is sipping just a practical guideline because that's all you can do in thr first days?
