Symptoms of Dehydration

From the Fitness & Wellness After Hysterectomy Articles List

What are the signs of dehydration after a hysterectomy?What are the signs of dehydration?

It can be easy to get dehydrated, especially when starting a new exercise program or making major diet changes. Knowing the signs of dehydration can help you recognize them so you can treat them more quickly.

Many signs of dehydration can be the same as several other issues, so it can be a good idea to keep a symptom diary. You should keep track of your symptoms, what and how much you eat and drink, and your exercise routine. Being aware can help you follow some do's and don'ts for dehydration so you minimize your risks.

Severe dehydration can cause serious complications, so it's important to recognize dehydration early. If you experience the following symptoms, you could be dehydrated:
  • Weakness, dizziness, or fainting
  • Lack of sweat
  • Dry skin
  • Dry sticky mouth
  • Brain fog or confusion
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fatigue or exhaustion
  • Increased thirst
  • Urination issues
  • Constipation
Just as water was important for your hysterectomy recovery, it is also important for overall good health. In addition, when exercising you will need even more water than usual.

If you begin an exercise program or make any major diet changes, talk to your doctor about how much water and other fluids you need to drink to be healthy. Then, make a conscious effort to monitor your water and fluid intake to be sure you drink what you need. While exercising, you may need sports drinks which contain electorates along with adequate water.

If you notice any dehydration symptoms, increase your fluids and call your doctor. If dehydration becomes severe, you may need IV fluids so the quicker you can treat symptoms the better!
