Four Days Post Op and having trouble with fluids



Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I had my surgery four days ago. Op went beautifully, but I was horribly nauseated afterwards, and vomited in recovery, and for hours afterwards. It's fine now, but I'm only getting down about half the Fluid and shake requirements the nutritionist set out. Has anyone else struggled with this and how did it work out?

Really appreciate any feedback.

I didn't get to my reccomendations until about 4 weeks out, don't stress, as long as you are getting in as much fluids as you can, you will be fine!

It's very normal at this stage to struggle to get in both your Protein and Water. Just keep sipping like it's your job. Getting in all your protein is critical for healing. Just keep working at it even if you don't feel like it.

Hey Hunny,

Like the other posts said, sip sip, and you guessed it sip!

I remember thinking I was going to be like this forever and felt upset and frustrated! I know it sounds cliché but each day really does get better!

Do what you can, don't force yourself, trust what your body is saying.

It's got a whole bunch better. Not quite up to 2 litres of Fluid per day, but getting there. Had my stitches out yesterday, and had a good talk to the nurse (who nearly a PHD in bariatrics now - good for her). Interesting to find out that I should expect a bit of hormone hell, as estrogen is stored in body fat - which is now being released. That's gonna be fun for hubby!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
