For for the last few days I have been so cold. Is this normal for sleevers?

Totally normal. If you do a search about it, you will see many, many people have temp issues. I still am chilly at 7 weeks out.

I've heard a lot of people talk about being cold after surgery. Less insulation, maybe?

I remember doing a low fat diet years ago and was always freezing. I do think it's normal.

Ya, I don't know what's up with that, but I've been like that since surgery too, which will be WAY nice here in New Mexico during the summer. I was normally so hot all the time, I never went out in the summer time. Rarely wore a jacket in the winter. I get my own private summers with menopause, and that has even calmed down! So...it's working for me.

My husband laughs because I now have a blanket on when I am sitting on the coach. I am also the one that never has socks on and I can't live without them now.

I rather dress in layers than not lose the weight

I have been on my pre op diet for two weeks and I am freezing all the time. My husband laughs and says "Now you know how I have felt all of these years." He says I would always make him cold by having the windows open or having the AC on high. Boy am I paying for it now.
