I'm 1 week post op. I had half my thyroid removed and have been super thirsty since operation. Is this normal?
Hey there Michjen79
Sounds like during your operation they didn't give you enough fluids, so you're making up for it now. After one of my ops, when I came round, my mouth felt like I'd been buried in a desert for a week. I was so unbelievably dehydrated.
So don't worry about it, and besides, you're supposed to be drinking at least 2 litres a day. So I doubt it will be hurting you.
Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today. - Thich Nhat Hanh
