I didn't have that but I have heard it can be common. Make sure to drink a lot of Water. My doctor had suggested buying breath strips (the kind that dissolve in your mouth). I bought them but didn't need them. This will change once you can eat more foods.

Be cautious of thrush forming in your mouth. It is quite common in the first few weeks...maybe from imbalance of how your body is handling all the changes. It usually coats your tongue to where it looks white, and tastes yucky too. Nystatin solution is usually prescribed.

I've heard many people say that their doctors recommended biotene for after surgery. A dry yucky mouth is fairly common for us since we're only able to take in so much liquid at a time. Biotene is a mouthwash made specifically to remedy dry mouth and it helps a ton. Hope it gets better for you soon!

I've heard it's bc you are in ketosis, basically burning fat!

I had bad dry mouth too. Idk if I had bad breath. No one told me I did lol. I didn't get thrush from surgery but I did get my first ever yeast infection. That was not fun!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
