I don't eat much at all at this stage after surgery, the doctor thinks my pouch may be a little small so I mostly just drink protein so my sodium intake is very low. Is it silly to just plain mix salt with water to get my sodium intake up? This whole thing is backwards to me!

I am afraid that I cannot comment on the low sodium because I don't know anything about it, but I just wanted to say that I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time. What did they suggest when they discharged you from the hospital? Perhaps there is medication you can take.

I have low sodium. It took me a while to figure it out. You can buy salt tablets online. Don't search for sodium tablets though, you won't find them. Symptoms are lack of appetite, muscle cramps (mine are in my feet and legs), low blood pressure. My BP runs about 80 over 50 (sometimes lower). One salt tablet a day keeps that symptoms away.
