I sipped one ounce every 15 minutes.  The nurses gave me medicine cups to measure out.  It's a full time job but keep it up!  Hope you're feeling good, best of luck.

I got mine Tuesday and was told 1oz every 15 minutes.  That is 4oz per hour.  The nurses gave me medicine cups to measure it out too!

My DH just asked how many of those things do you have.  He is washing them for me

BAND REMOVED 9-4-12-fought insurance to get sleeve and won! Sleeved 1/22/13! Five years out and trying to get that last 15 pounds back off.

Same here 1 oz per 15 mins. You may or may not get nauseated with this. If you do walk and ask for anti nausea meds. Zofran dissolvable have been my friend.

Also get the hang of this before you leave the hospital. It is very easy to get behind on drinking and can quickly lead to dehydration. I spent this past Sunday morning in the ER getting fluids and finding out that I was on my way to a UTI. If the water doesn't bother you consider yourself blessed beyond means

If you still in your hospital bed,  best advice is to ask a doctor or nurse, not here     mail
