Summer 2018 Surgery Buddies: POST-OP Discussion



Recommended Posts

3 days out, curious how others were doing 3 days out!
My surgery was Wed morning so I'm 2 days out. I'm tired and sore. I miss my morphine pump [emoji852]️ I don't regret it at all but I can't wait to feel better. But I can shower when I get up on Friday! I'm having trouble sleeping so I told my husband we are buying a recliner asap. We need a new one anyways. Ours broke and we never replaced it. How are you feeling?

I had my surgery June 11 and will be on clear liquids plus Protein Shakes until July 6th. Not even any creamy Soup, just broth. I added some unflavored Isopure Protein to my chicken broth and accidentally made it a little to hot. It was the best little lumps I ever tasted hahaha. Kind of like cheese...

For those of you who are post op, how much could you get down in fluids the first few days? When I was on an iv I didn't try as hard. I'm currently at 32 ozs for the day. That was the minimum goal from my program. The thought of 64 ozs of anything is really overwhelming. I'm 3 days post op.

I was in the hospital for two days. On the third day when I got home, I would say around 30-40oz of actual water; but my Protein Shakes also counted toward fluid goals so maybe about 50oz if you include Protein shakes. It was tough at first to get all the Water in but each day I was able to do just a title more than the day before. I’m up to about 72oz now and two week post op.

Thanks for the reply! I was only in the hospital overnight. Surgery was Wed morning and I was home by 10am on Thursday. I start full liquids tomorrow. Hopefully that helps.

I'm two days out. I managed to drink 4oz of Water an hour in the hospital, so long as I wasn't sleeping. However, due to my sleepiness, nausea, and the three hour car ride home earlier today, I haven't been really keeping track since we left. I'm guessing maybe 20oz today... I'll have to start tracking it tomorrow morning again. Supposed to get double that.

I will say though -- I thought 2oz of Tomato Soup was never going to be enough, but it took me nearly an hour to get it all down! I'm kind of worried about how I'm going to keep up eating/drinking as much as they want me to.

Well I had surgery on the 20th. I’m still in the hospital. Because they were having problems keeping my bp up. Then they did labs and my kidney is having issues. Hoping all is well and I can go home tomorrow.

I am 8 days out and getting in about 40oz in. Not including broth, Jello, or popsicles. Mostly Clear Protein Drink. Had my post op visit today. Told me to increase my fluids. So hard because I like to gulp my drinks and I can’t do that. Sometimes I forget and take a big swig I pay for it very painful

Almost 3 weeks post op from my DS here. Feel great except for the reflux or heartburn I get whenever I eat or drink anything.

I had bypass on May 29th. Close to a month out. Still following diet plan, only 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of food at each meal. I've advanced to soft foods so I can have string cheese and triscuits (only 2-3) now. Looking forward to having that soon! :)
