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 just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
