There are many gastrointestinal surgeries that can make it difficult to get the fluids and nutrients you need. Recovery from GI surgery can be a rocky road when you are also suffering from dehydration and nutrient deficiencies. Hospitals make it easy for patients to stay hydrated with IV fluids for their patients – the same option is available at home with mobile IV therapy.
Many GI surgeries will require limitations on food and beverage intake during recovery. Since you need your fluids and nutrients to heal, this can be frustrating. It is common for patients recovering from surgery on their stomach, esophagus, gallbladder, colon or other digestive organs to experience nausea or vomiting that can make it hard to get enough nutrition and hydration. A solution is to bypass the digestive system altogether to replenish the fluids and nutrients.
Bariatric and GI Recovery
If you had weight loss surgery like a gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, you would need to follow a restricted diet during recovery. Many other GI surgeries like hiatal hernia or gallbladder removal will require a similar diet. Often patients may only be able to consume liquids and in very tiny quantities. If a patient is experiencing nausea or abdominal pain, getting the advised amount of fluids may be almost impossible. Dehydration can cause serious health problems, especially when the body is trying to heal from major surgery.
Mobile IV therapy is ideal for patients who are not getting the required fluids absorbed every day. Ideally, bariatric patients should be consuming 64 ounces of water or fluid a day, which can be very hard to accomplish in the first weeks after surgery. IV vitamin drips provide instant delivery of fluids, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients to rehydrate patients during their recovery.
