  1. Thanks that was good info. There is a fine balance of which I was unaware.
  2. Wow I have been having such an easy time since the sugery overall...It has just been an incredibly smooth ride thus far. Well...Today I became light headed and and went in to check my BP...62/42 WOW!! What happened? My BP never ever has been that low that I know of. I had 2 ounzes of cream of chicken no meat) a little later drank some water and now back up to normal or getting close. I beleve my sodium is low and surprisingly I have exceeded 64 oz a day and still Dehydrated I will have to drink a little more. It has not bothered me.. Now I am 102/55 almost back to normal...That was wird.Any guesses or similar stories?
  3. Thanks...Hard to believe it was dehydration even though I thought about it. I have exceeded water intake every day. That includes surgery day. I have been under for several surgeries and never had a mouth that dry when I woke up! Had to be dehydration that day.

    Pre-op diet & failure

    Mke dang sure you are clear liquids today all day and nothing on monday at all by mouth after midnight tonight... and no cheating! You can do this!!
  5. Wow! Honestly I would be good with just going once every few days. I suspect that may not be the case for me but I lern something knew on here wveryday. Thanks for the scoop on poop!
  6. Thanks, I will ask my doc about it. Strange thing is it started right after surgery. Yesterday/ day 5 post op, I had improved pressure. Nurse told me it take a while for all of those organs to wake up.
  7. Before surgery I could pee like a race horse , now...not so much. must be reduced volume in liquid. As a former beer drinker I got in north of 64 oz of liquid a day. Anyone similar to this post op?
  8. Thanks! I will pick up some Smooth Move!
  9. We will be saving a lot of money on Toilet paper and groceries!
  10. Yes you pre ops pack it in your bag to take to the hospital, Great Stuff!!
  11. Something I learned pre op. I had no idea. I've had several surgerise and never had a mouth that dry!
  12. I saw a video on Youtube about a lady headed to the hospital for surgery. She talked about the need for dry mouth spray. I bought some at CVS. They have Biotene dry mouth and the CVS brand. I was so thankful to have it at the hospital. I would encourage folks to take this with them to the hospital. My mouth was so dry I could barely open it. This spray is good stuff! Less than $10. You can use it later as well. Just a little nugget 😎
  13. Thanks for giving me the low down on POOP! I would think that you cannot make stool without food.Just wanted to ckeck ...Thanks for your solid answer!
