Ah! It gets easier. Just take lots of little sips. There is swelling in your pouch. Give it time.

This is pretty typical and I had trouble too. I can now chug Water. It gets way better.

Check with your Dr. I had to get fluids 2x and they do it out patient. It will make you feel better and I could do it 3x a week if I needed to. Good luck!

Sip constantly, carry whatever you need to drink with you everywhere, it gets better. Dizziness is a sign of dehydration, drink salty Bone Broth - it helps. It is very difficult to get rehydrated once you are in true dehydration, watch out for that. Some people end up needing an IV to combat it, if your urine is dark, scanty, and your hand skin stays pinched when you tug it up and you pass out a lot - have someone take you to ER/Urgent care. Stay rested, sip, sip, sip - those are your only jobs right now.

Hi there! Even pre-op, I was terrible at keeping hydrated, but now post-op, my body really tells me when I'm not giving it enough Water. I fill a big jug of waterat the beginning of the day, add lemon rind and mint leaves and then leave it out of the fridge. When you drink cold water, you stomach contracts as it has to use energy to warm it up which can cause tummy ache. Try drinking room temperature or warm water.

You have to continue to sip for several weeks, perhaps even months post. I still don't tolerate ice Water and ask for it room temp. I can drink warm drinks like tea and coffee a lot faster than water.

I remember having a lot of dizzy spells too. They did go away at some point but I didn't notice when exactly. Hang in there! Feeling normal will return again but it does take time.

Maybe a little dismotility from all the intubations. Many of your body areas have no sense of humor when they feel they have been hurt too much. Yeah, I do hope time heals all things!🏆👍

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
