Hello everyone. I was diagnosed a couple days ago with Strep, mono, and a UTI. I am very sick. I have been to the hospital once already for IV fluids, potassium, and antibiotics. I am struggling to stay hydrated and slowly losing that battle. I am trying to sip sip sip but it hurts not just in my throat but the whole way down and makes me nauseaus. I had my VSG on 03/01/12. Does anyone have any advice right now on staying hydrated or anything that may help. I am so miserable. The plus side is that I have officially lost 1/2 of my extra weight this week. I have lost 59 lbs and I have 59 lbs to go. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
