Straws Suck

I bought 200 straws prior to surgery, thinking they'd come in handy during recovery. NOT the case. As a matter of fact, sucking through straws is neither recommended, nor possible (without hurting). Straws suck! Zip 'n Squeezes rock! Thanks for the tip, Brandy! ;) I ordered the hospital pack tonight - hope they arrive soon!

My surgeon told me no straw for the first 8-9 weeks as well. It didn't really matter because I couldn't create any suction for at least that long. Even now, at 21 weeks post-op, I have difficulty with straws that are particularly large or rigid.
