I have been wondering how you are doing?? Is the bowels behaving??? I am anxious to know...
Sorry to hear about the hair loss etc. Yes i am also one to not drink much but i try to ensure i get at least 4 pints of fluid a day (not sure how many ounces) by drinking from largish mugs.
it helps that i drink tea and coffee of which i have one of each in the morning and then another cup of tea lunchtime then mid afternoon it is a watered down apple or grape juice with lemon juice and ginger and i have it warm. then i might have a green tea before teatime and then a milky drink (which doesnt count) before bed.
i dont eat fruit at all because it just blows me up, the same goes for fizzy drinks. You could try flavoured water with no added sugar.
i dont think coke is a good thing to drink at all actually. i have heard on a programme i watch regularly on TV that it depletes your system of essential vitamins. you could eat soup which is fluid based.
i am surprised you havent been referred to a dietician as that would put you at ease i am sure.
Amanda that is so great to know! that has really encouraged me seeing as your op history is similar to mine (pre t/c of course) and i just cant wait.
i also drink soya milk - it says it has vitamins calcium and omegas - i drink it from habit really going back to when i did an elimination of dairy. i quite like the taste especially on cereal and in coffee - u should try it. though i am sorely lacking in energy and vitality but that's because of the constipation i suppose.
wow i cant wait to get better and have energy again - have a good time at the gym.
