Hi there, I had my sleeve done on Monday the 11th of October it was spring on me at very short notice and I’m not educated enough on this.
I was wondering if someone could tell me if sipping tiny little amounts on a teaspoon of a broth is a way to get more fluids in?
I am only getting through 1-1/2 cups of Water a day.

Thank you, in the uk we are asked to take puréed foods from the second day of surgery and I’m able to eat 1-2 tablespoons per day.
it hurts to go down a little but I guess that’s normal?
also will I ever be able to take a pill again in pill form rather than crushed?
I know not yet but ever?

Yes, is normal for it to hurt the first few days. Keep doing as much as you possibly can until you reach what your supposed to be doing, then keep doing that.

You will likely be able to do pills normally once the pain subsides. Real soon.

Sounds like you are doing well. Just continue doing your absolute best.

Good luck,

Tek

Yes it felt like drinking aquarium gravel for the first couple weeks. Bone Broth, tea, and also sugar free popsicles.

My surgeon (in the US) counted anything allowed on the liquid diet as liquid. So not only Water but Protein Drinks, broth, Soup base, sugar free Jello (UK jelly), sugar free pudding, low carb yoghurt, &c. The goal was 80 oz. of liquid, not 80 oz. of water.

These days I usually drink 2 L of water in addition to what I eat/consume, which is about 67 oz. of water.

My instructions say pills smaller than a US dime coin will be okay. Not sure what’s about that size in the UK. Hope you feel better soon.

A dime is 19 mm in diameter, the closest British equivalents would be the 5p (18 mm) or 1p (20.3 mm).

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
