I consumed too much water two weeks ago and my abdomen was distended in that area. I ended up with an irritation of the bladder. I reduced my water intake, and some of the distention disappeared, and a recheck at urology office showed disappearance of the irritation and less retention of urine. I would say to not overdo on the water, or you could develop problems. A bladder irritation is a symptom and could be something serious. 64 ounces of liquid is enough for me. Plus, don't stress the bladder by forgetting to empty regularly. This information is from my physician.
