Is sodium a problem for anyone else?



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone. I'm new here. My surgery is scheduled for Monday and I'm so excited. I feel like I'm going to see my fairy godmother. Fix my body a nd I'll fix my mind. Wish they could fix my mind to but...know only I can do that. I was wondering if anyone else has a issue with sodium or had? Is it still a problem after being sleeved? Or it's not a issue anymore do to the small amount of food being eating? Or is this a question I need to address on another board after surgery? I have heart disease and have had OHS already so I avoid anything salty. Thank you for being here.

One good thing is you will already be getting blood work done probably twice a year so you can look at your sodium levels along with the other levels to see if an adjustment is needed. I always drank tons of Water pre-surgery so I was concerned I might have to watch my sodium intake post surgery because of the limited amount of water I could drink. I'm a little over 2 months post-op and back up to 100+ oz a day of water so sodium concentration shouldn't be an issue. Just shoot for high liquid goals and you will be good. I was going to say golden but when it comes to pee, you want to shoot for clear. LOL
