I am 4 days post op and I am so thirsty!! I am drinking the one medicine cup every 15 minutes slowly, but I am so thirsty. Did anyone experience this? Oh and I have dry mouth, I've been using biotene. Like I said, I'm really thirsty lol!!

WEre you put on any anti-nausea meds? I could not eat enough ice when I was in the hospital. We discovered after my continuous complaints about thirst that the anti-nausea med I was on had the side effect of cotton mouth. Once I was off it , it got better, but hung on somewhat for a few more days.

Just a thought,

I meant to put I was 3 days post op, my surgery was on the 19th.

Yes when I was in the hospital they gave me some anti-nausea medicine also. It's probably the side effects of the medication I had. But I am still thirsty and I don't know what to do to quench my thirst lol.

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      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.
