Ok, so anyone else have urine that smelled like rotten eggs right after surgery? I thought it might just be from the anesthesia, but figured it would toss it out there and see if anyone else had experienced this.

I don't know, but I'd say drink lots of water and flush out your system.

I had that happen when I did the Atkins diet many years ago.

Are you doing a high protein/low carb diet? If so, that nasty smell might be from ketosis rather than from surgery.

If you are just post surgery I would call your doctor. You may have a uti but call to make sure.

It's your body metabolizing meds. Keep hydrated to help your liver in the process.

(taking a few steps back...ok I need to get some fresh air) lol
