I had the exact same problem. I don't drink coffee or tea but I was certainly drinking the heck out of clear broth to try and get my fluids. The pain eventually went away in about 2 months. I feel your frustration. It will pass. Warm water was ok too but it just wasn't palatable all the time.

i have been waiting for it to go way but i am almost at my one year mark and it still happening i cant really go back to may Surgeon because my husband is in the army and now we live in Germany so its going to take a some time for them to find me a new doc also we maybe leaving here this summer too, so i just dont know that to do. all i know is coffee and tea are the only things that dont hurt! i have tried warm water but that also hurts, i have even tried to filter the water thinking maybe it was something in it that sill didnt help. with summer coming i really dont want to have to drink hot stuff, it will just make me feel hotter

5 1/2 years out and I still can't drink anything colder than room temperature. It gives my pouch a toothache sensation.

I had a problem with cold liquids for the first few months, it seemed to make my pouch cramp up and hurt. Gradually it has gotten better and I love icy drinks now! Take it slow and adjust the temperature of your liquids until you find what makes your pouch the most comfortable.

Sometimes I can drink cold water and sometimes I can't. It's so hit or miss. I can physically tolerate warm things better, but my brain doesn't want them, if that makes any sense... I gag if I try to drink soup or broth.

Right after surgery I drank a lot of hot tea (decaf) instead of water. Now, at a little more than 3 months I drink mostly water and it has to be ice cold. I can't drink it room temp anymore. I still have a cup of tea every night before bed, but that is just to relax.
