Summer is hot! We typically need more water in these months anyway, but having surgery recovery during these months means EVEN MORE water needed!
We recommend keeping a water bottle near you at all times. There are even apps that set off alarms often to remind you to take sips.
During your hysterectomy recovery, your body relies on water to help it return to its normal functions. Your bladder needs to wake up. Your intestines need the extra fluid to keep your bowel movements soft.
Add to those reasons, water helps to flush out toxins of anesthesia and medicines that are no longer needed. Think of water as clearing out the debris!
Water also helps prevent UTI as it dilutes urine and provides a natural work-out for your kidneys.
So make sure to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Be kind to yourself,
