Water tasting funny? 5 days PO

Recommended Posts

So, I am 5 days post op. Doing great. Back at work. Walking. Showering. Getting in all my fluids. BM started on day 3. Surgeon wants me on mostly Water because my BM were more than 3 times a day and she said that is usually from the artificial sweeteners in the sports drinks and popcicles. So I am doing mostly Water, and 8 oz of broth a day.

Water. Tastes. Funny.

Today was the first day. But I have had 50 oz as of 1pm, and It all tastes like, well, I don't know... weird.

In fact. My mouth in general has a horrid taste. I am guessing this is the ketosis, and there is nothing I can do about it but suck it up.

Unfortunately, if your surgeon won't allow artificial sweeteners then Water enhancers are out. How about trying herbal infusions like mint or other herbal "teas"?

It will get better.

I agree with inner surfer girl - try some mint, lemon, lime, cucumber, apples, etc... to infuse your Water. Might help.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
