Not enough water or nutrients



Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm new to this. My surgery date was 12/9, since then I have lost 45lbs, but feel nauseous all the time and dry heave all the time. I am now on nausea medication and the dr said if I can't get more liquid and nutrients in I could have to have a pic line put in and get an iv daily. I was getting around 40oz of liquid, but can only eat about a 1/2 cup total of cottage cheese, or Soup a day. I also drink about half of a Premier Protein. Just curious if anyone else has experienced this and if so any suggestions.

The hardest part is to drink liquid while working.

You have to sip, sip, sip all day long. Gatorade Zero. Water. flavored water (Crystal Light, etc.), Soup broth, sugar-free popsicles all count as water to keep you hydrated. Very important.

Hello, I had my surgery 12/12 and have lost 27 pounds. I sip all day. In the morning I drink one Premier Protein shake that takes me about 2 hours to drink but I end up finishing it. Throughout the day I sip on Water, electrolyte and Gatorade Zero. It is very hard but you must be consistent and drinking all day.

I’m in the same boat as you but haven’t talked to my dr.

Oh no, that sounds terrible! Really surprised anything like this would happen with a sleeve, to be quite frank.

Hi there, new to the group. I had RNY 12/17 and have been suffering from nausea as well. I take 2 different types of anti-emetics but it doesn't always help. I have a hard time with the Protein Shakes and electrolyte drinks. Anything sweet makes me nauseated which is so different than prior to surgery, cause I used to love sweet things. Also having hard time meeting my Protein goals.
So I feel what you are going through. It has been a difficult journey thus far, but hopefully a light at the end of the tunnel.
