More than 6oz per hour?

Recommended Posts

I am post op day 4 and am wondering if I can take in more than 6 oz an hour? I am getting everything easily and my instructions say at least 64 oz liquid. Do you vets think it is ok to drink as tolerated?

My doc's instructions was 1.3 - 3 oz/ hour for the first week. And honestly, that's all I could get in. But everyone is different.

Absolutely. I mentioned to my doctor at my follow up appointment on Day 6 post-op that I had consumed 24oz of Water on my way to his office from my home (roughly 1 hour drive time) - he didn't bat an eye and congratulated me on a speedy recovery!

I would say to drink every ounce that you can--being fully hydrated is so important!

Artymama by day 5 I was getting in at least 70 oz of Fluid .. I was worried also so I called my surgeon and she told me it was fine that I needed to keep hydrated and that was just a way of showing me that my stomach was healing fast and well !

      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. 😁

        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.

        Think about all you will gain. Seriously, nothing is better than my size 4 jeans!

        nothing tastes better than thin feels.....

        There is nothing wrong with burgers and wings...it's only the amount that is the issue. Why not have a burger but take away the bun? You dont need to eat the entire burger. My favorite is using the sous vide to cook them and then giving them a little color in the frying pan. It's all protein anyhow.

        As for the wings, why not try making wings at home? By making your own sauce you can cut down on the empty calories.

        By giving up foods, you can also cause issues, mental ones. The idea is to not eat all of it, but to enjoy a little portion. That's why we have the stomach changes to begin with. But in all takes things slowly and see what your stomach allows.
