Dehydrated



Recommended Posts

Everything was great except on day 6 I started to get cold. Got up off the couch, and grabbed a blanket. It was better, but i didn't really warm up much. Had my wife feel my head to see if I was running a fever (thinking infection) and she didn't really think so.

Did a BP and pulse check. BP 145/82 (high for me) and pulse 110 (very fast). So now I'm getting worried.

Went to find the thermometer. 99.9 degrees, Great! The doctor said "call if temp over 100".

Pulled out the Ipad and looked up symptoms of Dehydration. It had a picture of me.

Went to the fridge and grabbed a 32oz Gatorade Zero, and drank over a 30 minute period.

Never looked back 😎

I been there, i had to get IV fluids around 4 weeks post op and my vein went flat because it was so bad! and tell me that needle stick hurt! i never hurt during labs or donating blood with them big needles before so i can relate to your pain haha. You just need to be drinking something all the time. with electrolytes preferably. There are powders you can buy for Water bottles.

I think I read somewhere that coffee can dehydrate you. Anyone?

Was it caffeinated coffee? Caffeine is dehydrating.

Right. I am allowed to drink it as well. But caffeine is dehydrating so I make sure to limit it is all.

Caffeine in coffee is such a diuretic that it can actually remove more Water, than is in the coffee itself. It is a net negative to drink any caffeine. 1/2 Caf is just half the problem. My group said absolutely no caffeine until I am on a regular diet, many months out.

My surgeon didn't approve coffee until I was six months post op. He said that coffee acts as a diuretic which defeats the purpose of drinking liquids to keep hydrated.

I went to Walmart and actually bought a 64 ounce cup. It’s fantastic. It’s a knock off yeti and was only 20 bucks. That’s how I keep up with my fluids and I also HATE room temperature fluids. It keeps things cold for 3 days.

It's so important to keep sipping, sipping, sipping sugar-free non-caffeinated liquids all day long. I usually get 10-11 glasses a day of Water or water with peach teach crystal light powder in it.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
