its a life sentence, However it may not be 60 You can do a hydration test and back it down a little. For example I only drink 48-50 oz now a day and I am fine and hydrated. But this is a long way out Many months.

Also if you hate Water as much as I do, eat a Soup for lunch every day it has water, Suck on a popsickle lots of water in that, offsets the drinking it a little

yes - for life. Although even non-WLS people should be doing that, too. A lot of health people recommend eight cups of Fluid a day - so that's 64 oz.

Keep in mind that fluids in (some) food also counts as Fluid so it doesn't mean 64oz of clear Water

FOREVER... for me, I start retaining Water and will gain a few pounds if I don't get in at least 65oz a day but I function best drinking more than 85oz and will lose that water weight taking in 100oz. But I count my Protein Drink, coffee, tea and water. If I have a glass of wine, I count that too but it is a small price to pay for feeling so good.

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
