Hydration and vitamin bar ? 🤔



Recommended Posts

Just thinking …. This is a local hydration Vitamin bar. Would anyone try this immediately Post op for wellness and recover just to get by the rough patch.< br /> It is medically supervised. Curious as too what everyone’s thoughts are who have been there and needed IV for dehydration after surgery. I will ask my surgeons thoughts when I go next.

I wouldn’t. My aunt did that and had some issues and was told it’s BECAUSE she wasn’t getting enough fluids with it. Now that she’s getting enough she swears by it that she feels better but immediately post op so many people struggle to get enough fluids that I would wait until drinking enough fluids at least and even still I would ask a doctor if it was really better than the Multivitamin as to not waste my money. Another note. If anyone IS dehydrated post surgery. Don’t wait until it’s so bad you need to go to the ER. My doctor arranged from me to get an IV as an outpatient and it was no big deal. I was so worried about it and was so glad she arranged it for me. I felt so much better afterwards.

Sleeved on 12/22/2021. I've done several IV's since my surgery. Love them but the place near me is way more expensive than yours and I can't afford to do them as much as I would like. I wish I had one of your places where I live. I always get the "Myers" with add on glutathione. It's your Triple Immunity RX.

Where i live there is a company that does Mobile IV hydration and you can add from a large list of Vitamins to it. They send out a Registered Nurse to your home to do it. Its expensive as you can see. I would have if i didnt have issues with needles lol. Even the hospital staff took over 20 minutes to find a vein on me. lol

Would you have used this the first week after surgery ? Do you think it’s worth it When only a few days post op

Getting in my fluids has been a real struggle since surgery. Protein has been easy but fluids are hard lol.

I would ask the IV store. Mine helped me a lot and suggested I get the big hydration bag. I started the IV 1 or 2 weeks after surgery. I also did acupuncture for healing.

I was just thinking “in addition” . I was looking at the hydration bags and not so much the Vitamin injections right away. And Never in place of regular vitamin intake.

this article from Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA says there's little scientific evidence that these work. Sounds like a big profit maker for these places.

      Hey everyone!  It has been a while since I was on here.  I had a lap-band placed in 2014 but now I would like it revised to a gastric sleeve.  There are no drs here in Tallahassee (Florida) that do that and I need to go the self-pay route (my insurance will not cover it!)  Any recommendations on nearby doctors that do self-pay revision surgeries?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
