    I'm having a hard time getting in all the fluids I'm supposed to have. I'm only supposed to have a couple sips every five minutes so I don't see how I can get it all in. Is anyone else having a similar issue and any advice is appreciated thanks

    It's a tough one. I never gulped but I drank naturally and was able to get mine in. Right after surgery I would drink slowly and I found it hard as well to get enough in.

    When I was at this phase I kept a cup of ice close and in between sips I let the ice melt in my mouth naturally which added to my fluid intake and helped with my dry throat. Maybe that would help a little? Good luck reaching your goals :)
