Am I dehydrated ?



Recommended Posts

Hi. I don’t know if I’m dehydrated . I usually have bladder control problems

but at the moment not passing much urine , and have stomach ache and not feeling very well . Its not such a nuisance ! but I’m not sure it’s good either . Does anyone else have this ?

Try to drink more Water and electrolyte beverages then check your urine color (the lighter the better)

Good Luck 💜

I agree with the post above..try liquid with electrolytes and sip, sip, sip. I would also call my Dr office if it concerned me just to make sure it’s not something else.

Thank you Greentea. My urine is dark greeny brown ! 😳I THINK it could be one of my tablets , which is also that colour . Does milk count as a liquid to help with dehydration ?

No if your urine is that dark... Light & clear fluids for a while like:

But please reach out to your team immediately

Normal for some people maybe

BUT

This may all be related to dehydration... but no one on here can diagnose you. Please email call your surgeons office immediately (if you can) and tell them everything

what’s liquid with electrolytes?

Vitamin Water zero, Gatorade zero, some types of regular bottled water, Propel Fitness water. Be sure to check the labels for sugar content as some are lower than others.

Thank you MeepMeep. Have just ordered some. I think we have different names for things here, I’m in the U.K. Are you in the U.S. ?

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
