I can totally sympathize with the weakness. What has helped me is Powerade. It tastes much better then Gatorade and it has B Vitamins ( B3, B6 & B12) which helps with energy. It also helps with your Electrolytes. I have been drinking 1- 32 oz. bottle everyday along with 80oz. of Water. I have found it really helps me. Just a thought. It is on my pre-op list of things to drink.

Hi there! Yes, normal and does improve with time. Since you are in Ireland and aren’t sure what Powerade and gatorade are, the equivalent would be something like the drinks athletes use to rehydrate after workouts/marathons/etc. They can be in sugar free varieties, with many different flavors and colors. The sugar free versions work double duty to not only meet your Fluid requirements but also replenish electrolytes and hopefully perk you up a bit. I hope this helps!

Did you drink a lot of caffeine daily before the pre-op? If so, that's probably one of the causes of your headaches. It can take several days to get rid of caffeine headaches.

Being on day 6 means that you are one day away from one week down, great job! You got this! Can you have sugar free Jello? It would be something to break up the monotony of just Protein Shakes and water.

I'm on day 2 of 10. I can at least half sugar-free Popsicles and Jello. You might want to call your surgeon's office and ask if you can add any of these into your diet. They surely don't want you to be too weak going in.
