Newbie and not sure what’s normal

Recommended Posts

I appreciate everyone on here being so helpful. I am six days post-op and on a full liquid diet. Every time I drink anything... water, broth, protein shake I get bloated and feel like there is gas in my stomach. It goes away after 20 or so minutes. What is that? Just normal healing or a new normal? Makes it hard to get my water in.

Sipping in and of itself generates a lot of air because every time you put a glass or whatever to your mouth, you automatically inhale.

A  bottle with a bite valve (Camalbak springs to mind) can help with that a lot.  Even a kids sippie cup can reduce the air you swallow.
