2 days post-op with a question??
on 1/16/13 3:26 am
It is rough getting down anything to drink. Will this feeling ever go away?? Feeling miserable. Please tell me I will not have this feeling all my life
no, you won't feel like this forever. Your stomach is very swollen and will be for weeks to the first month or so I think. Once the swelling goes down, you will notice much improvement in getting liquids down. Keep the faith. Each day will be better than the day before.

I am six weeks out tomorrow and you won't...just keep trying...think of how raw that new tummy is and how much it has been through...hang in there and keep sipping...things will get better...are you taking your ppi...that helped me a lot.

It will get better~!!! I swear!!! I'm 5 1/2 weeks out and feel almost completely normal (just a little tired still). I saw where one person set their phone to go off every 5 minutes to remind them to take a sip and by the afternoon, they had 1/2 of their needed water down. My esophagus hurt real bad for a while and fluids were hard. But getting dehydrated would be much worse. Just take the pain meds and sip. Each day, each week, each month will be better!!!! I promise~!!!!
