    Perhaps you should give your doctor a call and let him know.You could be getting dehydrated and your electrolytes are out of balance.

    I had surgery on Tuesday, just had some greek yogurt. Instead of only water try low calorie gatorade. I have been drinking crystal light and myoplex light protein drink. I do feel a little weak but not light headed. Good luck, hope you feel better!

    I also had surgery on Monday. I am unable to sip all day like I'm supposed to, and am not getting in even 20oz. of fluid a day. I get an extremely full sensation after only a few little sips and then I feel like I'm going to throw up (and my surgeon used a size 40 French bougie). Yesterday I had to switch from water to skim milk (4oz.) and then I add 1 oz. of flavored protein drink into it. It takes 20 minutes to get it down, but it helps. Right now I'm probably going through 6 popsicles a day and 12oz. of skim milk (plus 3oz of protein drink). I do take my chewable multi-vitamin daily. Our bodies are going through an extreme caloric restriction and are responding as such by causing dizzyness, feeling faint, etc. If you start having heart palpitations and extremely dark urine, see your doctor. You are dehydrated and need I.V. fluids. Good Luck to us both!!

    I had surgery on Tuesday, and you really should contact your surgeon's office, as the post-op diet varies widely depending on physician. One thing I had forgotten about was my little patch behind my ear for nausea. My vision was blurring and after I removed the patch, VOILA, felt better and eyesight improved. I know this might not be possible since you are having dizzy spells, but it helps me to walk around, take a sip, walk around, take a sip. Wishing you the best, and keep us posted!

    It sounds like you are dehydrated. I agree, you need to call your surgeon so he can help with the nausea so you can get you fluids down. This is what my surgeon had me do. Whatever you decide to drink, set a kitchen timer and every 10 min take a sip. Keep doing it and try to go for more than 64 oz of fluid a day for at least 3 days to catch up with your dehydration. It works. I had very similar problems and that's how I got better. I also felt super weak and had a weight loss stall when I was dehydrated. Sips, sips, sips! Good luck. Let us know how you're doing!
