I'm in Venice at the moment, yay! Something weird happened yesterday and I'm hoping it was just dehydration. Basically, when we were waiting for the boat from the airport to the city, I started feeling really faint and like I was somehow removed from reality. I thought I was going to pass out. Then, I gagged a number of times and felt much better.

I had drank a decent amount of Water on the first flight, but there was a tight connection on the way and I couldn't bring water through security and didn't have time to buy a bottle for the second flight. They only gave me one small 8 oz cup of water on board because it was pretty short.

Anyway, I guess my question is whether this sounds like dehydration or if I should reach out to my doctor about it. This is my first time traveling post op and I normally get all my water in easily at home, so I wasn't prepared for this drastic of a reaction.

I’ve gotten this too from dehydration. The passing out fuzzy feeling for sure.

Next time empty your bottle to carry it through security. Once past security, refill the bottle for carrying onto the plane.

I'm green with envy. Venice is my favorite city in the world.

Your condition sounds like dehydration to me, too. (That's mostly what jet lag is.) Hope you're feeling better now, so you can walk those romantic vias. Buon viaggio!

I'm concerned about dehydration and constipation. When I look at expected intake and the diet post-surgery, it seems like it's almost guaranteed to be a problem.

Thanks all! It's a relief to know that it's likely "just" dehydration, but what a crummy time for it to strike! I totally agree about emptying and refilling a water bottle but this was a circumstance where our plane was late and we were literally jogging (in public!) to make the next one so it wasn't really feasible this time. 😕 I feel much much better today!

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
