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.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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!
