I had surgery yesterday and was just discharged home from the hospital. I wanted to ask you guys about fluids when you came home.. I’ve been doing the sips every 2-3 minutes as instructed but it’s making me super nauseated. There is honestly no way I’m gonna be able to get 64 ounces in right now. I’m barely able to get 10. Is this bad I can’t get my fluids? Should I call my physician or is it normal not to be able to drink with getting nauseated right after surgery?

Its totally normal the way you feel. Hopefully they gave you some nausea tabs. I found that using med cups to get in my fluids really helped. Hopefully the nausea will go away soon. Yout body is in the process of healing, things will get better. Good luck!!

Thank you! Yeah they gave me Zofran but I called the doctor and they just called in something else. Hopefully it works better. I feel pretty good if it wasn’t for this nausea. I’m trying warm broth now hoping that the temperature difference will help.

Warmer liquid are easier to go down. Anything extremely cold hurts.

Yeah it’s not so much pain just every time I drink anything I’m getting nauseous. The broth didn’t help either. :-(

Congrats on your surgery! I'm sorry you're feeling crappy - those first few days can be really rough. You're doing the right thing by reaching out to your team for help with the nausea. I've always been really sensitive to anesthesia and I am so nauseous for days afterwards while it all works its way out of my system. You already know that you need to focus on liquids so if your new nausea meds aren't helping, you just get right back on that phone. Your team is there to help you and they want you to be successful, too.

While there's nothing we can do from here to help you nausea we can totally empathize with how much it sucks! I hope you heal quickly and feel better very, very soon.

I just had surgery yesterday as well, and I am struggling to drink anything at all. Every time I take a tiny sip, I get a weird gurgle and also pain stretching down from my chest into my stomach area. If I drink too quickly, then I get nauseous as well. So I'm taking it super super slow and drinking teeny tiny sips where I can.
