I know I'm drinking a ton of Water but sometimes I have to go every few minutes and I'm scared I'm going to get dehydrated. Has anyone else experienced this?

Every once in a while I go through the same thing but its usually my body flushing out extra Fluid build up

It maybe temporary for you but to be safe you *could* add electrolytes to your Water, stay within recommended amounts of fluids (64-100oz is usually plenty) and talk to your physicians if you think there may be another medical culprit

Good Luck 🌈

It's a good thing; it means your kidneys are working well. Keep sipping, sipping, sipping all day long.

Watch the color of your urine . If it is close to being clear, you are very well hydrated and getting rid of excess Water. Yellow like lemonade and you are hydrated. Dark yellowish brown like apple juice and you are beginning to get dehydrated so you should increase your water intake.

This isn’t unusual. Just annoying. Even going every 15/30 mins. It will eventually settle as your body gets used to the increased Fluid intake but you’ll still have times when you feel like you’re living in the bathroom. It usually happens to me at night unfortunately.

@arabesque

It doesn't do it to me all the time. Mainly when I lay down to take a nap OR like you said...at night.

I get this all the time, unfortunately, because I'm on diuretics right now. I know my "pee" pills are working if I'm in the bathroom every 10-20 minutes for a couple of hours. I really hope to get rid of these post-surgery!

You are still peeing out all of the IV fluids from your surgery!! Enjoy it, and enjoy the weight loss that comes with each pee! LOL!!

@machalo I'm sure you will be taken off Fluid pills. I was because you could get dehydrated very easy

Thanks @Chas74! I sure hope you are correct! These pills are a pest; always having to know where the next bathroom is no matter where you are going.

How is your recuperation going? I see you got sleeved a week ago. Congratulations!

@machalo it's going pretty good. This weekend was kinda tough because I'm used to eating good on the weekend plus being off work and bored is killing me cause I want to eat but I haven't had anything I'm not suppose to. I have my follow up tomorrow and then I go back to work Wednesday.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      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!!!
