2nd week post-op
Apr 25, 2010So today is the first day of my "Full liquid diet". I was sooooo hungry yesterday that I heated up a can of cream of potato soup and was able to eat the creamy part. It gave me diarrhea but boy was it good!! lol!!! I am able to tolerate Carnation Instant Breakfast. What I'm having problems with are the "thinner liquids" like water. When I drink it, I have this burning sensation around my epigastric area and for the life of my I can't figure out what it is!! I have been dizzy the last 3 days and b/w the diarrhea and burning with drinking, I know I'm not getting the fluids I need. I am also having this tingling sensation in my legs which I believe could be due to a magnesium deficiency but I'm gonna call my surgeon today to go over these symptoms. I just wish the diarrhea would stop!!!!!! Oh, well...........we'll see what happens!
