Does anyone else have a problem with dry mouth at night? I'm two weeks out from surgery and am having a terrible time with it. I'm not getting enough Water in due to nausea but on the days I have, I still have struggled with the problem. Any tips? I've ordered Xylitol because I am worried about my teeth decaying.

I am 8 months out and I still have this problem. Sometimes I feel like my tongue is stuck to the top of my mouth. I get plenty of Water, don't know why it happens.

If you find an answer , please post it. You have a 9 month RNY cousin in Ohio, even take a bottle of Water to the bedroom. Have to pry my tongue off the roof of my mouth to take AM pills.💦👅😼

Oh my gosh! I’m a week and a half post op and I have the same thing! It’s only when I wake up. I pretty much always get in all my Water but still have it when I wake up. And it takes more than a few sips to get under control. I love this website haha I love knowing I’m not the only one!

Now that is takes Conscious Effort to turn over in bed, if I try in my sleep, the hip pain wakes ME up, I must be a Mouth Breather, because every Morning it is linked with the Kalahari Desert. That, in itself is BAD but I hate the dried mucus I cough up after it is moistened. But at least I am still alive if I am still complaining, beats Death all hollow! I just wish I could take big enough sips that they satisfied my thirst. Still feel like too little to make a difference!

I've been using Xylimelts every night, and it seems to be helping.

I wake up with dry mouth around 2am and pop one in my mouth, against my gums, which induces salivation. Not a lot, but enough to supposedly reduce the risk of tooth decay. The Xylimelt tablets last for about four hours.

So I had this problem and my dr said it's because of some of the meds I was on. I keep biotene on hand too because of it.

      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!!  😈
