Default Trouble with water

Hello all. I've seen posts where people can not tolerate water after their surgery. Not that it won't go down/stay down... just that drinking it hurts or is uncomfortable. I seen the replys that state to find the right temp. I too had this problem. I could drink hot tea and eat popsicles, but the water was killing me at any temp. My sister who had the RNY years ago gave me some absurd advice, but I figured what would it hurt to try. It worked although I still think it's absurd.. so I thought I'd pass it along. She said she has to try all the brands of water until she found one that worked. I skipped the trying and went straight for her successful water... Smart Water. (I had already tried a variety, not on purpose, just based on what was avail.) The Smart Water actually worked. It is a softer, smoother feel and doesn't sting the pouch. Temperature still plays a role, I stick with room temp because its easiest, but prefer inbetween cold and room temp. My sister said she can drink any water now, so It might just be a healing thing. IDK, but hey I think it worked.

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Thanks for the hint. You know some of it has minerals in it. I noticed that in a commerical yesterday. I learend that. Perhaps its where they get it from? Like where it acutally comes from the spring or what. I dunno but its a good hint.

I live in the country so we have our own well. I know that city water has
alot of stuff going on with it. We have acutally two water filters on our tap water. One as it comes in the house..... and one that is on the main tap in our kitchen. Its a PUR filter. It seems I could take water better after its softened up also. Here where im at ... at the moment is city water and well I just cant drink it. I have did bottle since arriving.

So THANK YOU! This may help alot out there right now with drinking water.

I have had no problems with water but I noticed that now I have to have it really cold where as before surgery I couldn't stand cold water. Glad you found something that works for you. I love smart water. It is the only kind I drink but I don't think it has made me any smarter LOL.

I like smart water becasue of that softer feel going down. We live in the city (transplants from 32 years of country living & well water) & I know there are various chemicals in city water so I don't drink it much. While I can drink any brand of bottled water I prefer the Smart Water.

Interesting, I have to have really cold drinks too, and sometimes the water hurts, where as I don't have trouble with yogurts, puddings, etc. I'm learning all of the sensations, hopefully not the dumping though!
