liquids - making me sick

on 4/8/11 10:21 am - AZ
I can't get in all my water because after I drink for about 20 minutes (I only get in about 8 ozs in that time), my stomach starts hurting and I feel horribly full. It takes about an hour before I can drink again. Am I doing something wrong?

Have you tried flavored waters? For some reason it helps to have flavor (like crystal light or mio) instead of drinking plain water!

After my surgery, my doctor said to sip one ounce every 10 minutes the first few days.  No more than 6-8 ounces an hour.  After a few days I was able to tolerate more, you just have to pay attention to your body.  I did not tolerate cold liquids too well and actually didn't tolerate water until almost 4 weeks out.  Try decaf tea or warm broth.

Thanks.  It's not the flavor, it's the pain it causes. I'm trying room temp water now to see if that helps. I hope so. I am four weeks today so maybe it will get better soon.  I drank decaf tea today and it did the same thing but it was iced.
