Mio in ice water! My favorite is the mango/peach flavor.

That sounds yummy!

I'm 3 weeks out and am STILL always dying of thirst. I go to Sonic every day and get 2 Route 44 cups of ice and munch on them all day long. It's the only thing that really ever quenches my thirst. :)

Everyday I buy a large Water EXTRA ICE from Sonic.

Then I drink 1 or 2 Lipton Citrus green Tea Lemonade. Chilled very delicious.

Is that decaff? I almost bought some but caffeine causes dehydration, especially when you are newly out.

To help me be able to get liquids down in the hospital I used Bigelow Decaff Peppermint Tea & truvia. The warm liquid at first helped, especially with the new stomach. Since I was trying to get Water & the tea down the tea would really cool off during the night and I found it tasted good cold, where I couldn't get cold water down. Eventually the cold tea made it so I could tolerate colder water.

I think drinking out a small one ounce cup or a shot glass works better because I also take in less air which allows me to feel more quenched.

Fun Fact.....peppermint is great for soothing your stomach. Years ago when I worked in an ER, when someone would come in with a horrid smell, we would open peppermint oil all over the 3k sq ft ER and it would sooth our tummies.

Ice is now my best friend :) Powerade zero is what I go to when I feel like I am dying of thirst - which I think I felt the first 3 weeks post surgery, then paniced about getting dehydrated and sent back to the hospital. The Powerade really seemed to help - just kept it on ice and drank constantly.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
