Fluid retention

Recommended Posts

I had a gastric bypass (Roux n Y) on Monday this week and came home last night. It was a revision from a gastric sleeve due to a hiatus hernia and reflux.

Silly question, and I assume it is because of all the fluid they pumped into me, but I’ve put on 3.5 kgs since Monday. 

Any idea how long it will take to move on?

It took me a few weeks to get rid of all the IV fluids they pumped in me.

Congrats on your revision and good luck with your new journey

Did you have regain with the sleeve and how long before this revision?

I gained 7 pounds in the hospital.  Hope things are going smoothly?

Welcome and congrats! That IV fluid will make its way out of your system in a few days. Drinking plenty of fluids in the meantime may help. I wish you the best during your recovery. I hope this takes care of your reflux! :)
