I had my surgery on March 5, 2013. I have already been to the ER due to severe leg pain, which I was told the pain came from dehydration. I just can not stand drinking plain Water. I have tried Crystal Light and that stuff tastes horrible. Any suggestions????

Mio, Gatorade, Vitamin Water Zero, Clear broth, herbal tea... I had surgery almost 8 months ago and am only now tolerating plain water. Staying hydrated this early out needs to be a priority, even before getting your Protein in. You will soon be 2 weeks post op, if our post op diet was anything like most, you should be able to add all liquids in tomorrow including milk, Protein Shakes and strained Soup.< /p>

You have to get those liquids in. Even if it one sip at a time. Perhaps try crushed ice chips? I had those the first few days and it worked well for me.

Good luck to you.

Might sound crazy lol but koolaid . They have this little thing that u squeeze in to your liking and its sugar free . Its so good. Also 4C has the pavkets of different stuff such as lemonade , ice tea, pomegrante, there is tang also. There is usually at my supermarket a big selection and its all SUGAR FREe

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
