I lost my thirst... Anyone else?



Recommended Posts

I had the gastric sleeve in 2016. One of the side effects I have experience is that I do not get thirsty since having my gastric C. As a result I can go a day without even drinking Water and not even feeling thirsty. Oddly I brought this up to other gastric c ladies on another post a few years ago and no one seems to have the same problem. But it all started after my gastric C surgery and I can't seem to drink water real well. Takes time to put down 8 ounces of water at a time. Strangely, I can drink flavored water or wine for example and it's easy to drink down but water by itself just difficult. On top of that I just don't get thirsty and I've ridden my bike 20 miles, come home and realize late at night I still need to drink water cuz I haven't had any all day. I realize this is terrible but the odd part is I don't feel thirsty so I forget to drink. Through the years I'm starting to notice side effects like my lower back hurting my urine being highly yellow and I know it's real bad for me because I can injure my kidneys. I don't want to do that but I just was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem? I did recently get back a new blood test and I'm waiting for the doctor to call but it does show that I have some kidney issues probably a result of dehydration. I'm really trying hard to get my water in or some liquids but it really is a chore. Quite frankly I haven't lost that much weight from this whole surgery either I feel like what I lost was my thirst. Anyways I was just wondering if I'm alone so far as I haven't heard too many people with the same issue nor do I understand why it happen to me? Nor did my doctor.

Thanks for your feedback.

I used to drink Water all the time pre-surgery, and I don't really like it anymore. I drink A LOT, but not water - it's usually Crystal Light or flavored waters.
