Anyone else super itchy? I’m 7 days out and this is the 2nd day my skin is itchy around the incisions - I know it’s just healing. But it’s sooo itchy. Moisturizer isn’t helping.

Ok - just searched this site and found similar questions. FYI - cold pack, hydrocortisone, antihistamine were some suggested remedies.

I’m one day post op and I’m having such a difficult time drinking Water and since I’ve been home I’ve noticed I’ve been vomiting and have nausea. Anyone else experienced this ?

I had surgery on the 30th I can’t really drink Water either so I mix apple juice with the water. I do get nauseous all the time. They said that it’s normal. Any juice I have I do water it down even if it is sugar free it’s easier for me to tolerate

Yea they sent me home with nausea pills but I threw up last night and this morning. I’m just blown because I can hardly take my sips much less to take my pills with Water.

They make anti nausea patch I had in hospital. Maybe you can use that at home.

Thank you I did use them at the hospital and it didn’t work. However I haven’t had any nausea today thank god. But I do get dizzy from standing sometimes. Do you know how I can reach my Protein level like is there pills or something because I can’t drink a whole Protein Shake.

I don’t know of any pills but you should be able to drink more and more each day. I didn’t reach my Fluid or Protein goals the first few days either. They do make clear Protein Drinks that aren’t thick shakes but more like Water if that is easier to get down. Premier Protein makes one with 20g protein in like 17oz drink. They have fruit punch and peach flavor on Amazon. Those were a life saver for me cause the Protein Shakes are mostly all too sweet. Although I did later learn that premier proteins’ strawberry and caffe latte (has caffeine) aren’t as sweet and I have one a day now.

For what it’s worth, my nutritionist and others here seem to focus more on staying hydrated than worrying about Protein intake. Dehydration can make you nauseous and dizzy. So in terms of priority, don’t worry as much if you can’t get your protein goals. But are staying hydrated If you are having troubles getting anything down, your doctor may need to know and advise on what you should do.

good luck! Hope this passes quickly for you.
