| | 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.
