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!

Try Biotin toothpaste it keeps your mouth moisten and you teeth clean.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
