Hi Soliver,
There can still be swallowing issues after 8 weeks, but it sounds to me as if your wrap might be too tight.  Until you see your surgeon, I suggest you hang in there with liquids for a while longer.
 
If you scroll down the document below, you'll find some recipes for liquid nutritional drinks.  See if that work for you.
 
Hang in there!
Denise

Hi Soliver,
Yes, it is possible to take down the wrap.  My surgeon said he took it down on one person who couldn't tolerate not being able to burp.  It's just that when they take it down there will be some swelling at first, but then things will be back the way they were before the wrap.  Just consider how difficult things were back then before making that decision. 
Hang in there,
Denise
