How much water should I be aiming for?

Patients who have had weight loss surgery are more likely to experience dehydration, especially in the first 6 weeks. This can be caused by:

  • Vomiting/diarrhoea
  • Not feeling hungry or thirsty
  • Living in hot climates or working in hot conditions
  • Increased physical activity
  • Taking specific medication

Everyone should be aiming for a minimum of 1.5L fluid per day.
