Get to your clinic and get an IV, dehydration is nothing to fool around with. Once you are in that state it is difficult to rehydrate yourself.

Try warm weak tea, it relaxes the esophagus and muscles. Sip all day, seriously all day, glue that cup or bottle to your hand. Are you eating? Try Soup.

I’m 2 days post op and I’m struggling to get fluids down as well. I can’t even imagine trying to drink a Protein Shake right now.

Also also try the Premier Protein Clear drinks. This is second week out and initially it was the only thing I could drink for the first few days. They are it thick and easy to sip on.

It was easier to get in warm liquids (broth), a bit at a time. We picked up a little one cup hot plate (I think they are usually for keeping tea warm). It was really helpful.

I know this post is old but I had gastric surgery on 7/2/19 and it hurts every time I sip on anything. I’m freaking out about getting dehydrated but I can’t “stomach” the pain 🤦‍♀️

Does your dr know that you can't tolerate even sips? My dr wouldn't discharge me from hospital until I could manage 3-4 oz within an hour. I think you should contact your bariatric team asap and let them know what's going on with your body.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
