I started my period the day after surgery,but wasn't due for another two weeks...is that normal? I'm on bc but didnt take it the morning of surgery due to npo after midnight. I didn't take it the next day because I was so doped up to remember but started that evening. I have skipped a few days before and have never started my period because of it. Just curious.

Everyone's body reacts differently to that TOM after surgery. After my gallbladder and appendectomy surgeries, I didn't get my TOM till a month after the surgery itself so I skipped a month. I'm due for mine on the sixth but having had my surgery on June 24th, mine might be delayed a week or two, possibly a month due to the fact that your body has suffered a tramua.

I got my TOM over a week early during my 2-week liquid diet. I'm assuming that the dietary change caused it. Add missing two pills to dietary changes, and it might have been enough to jump-start your cycle!

The surgery can throw your body off along with not taking your bc. I'm on seasonique (i have my TOM every 3 months) and I started 3 weeks early right after the surgery. But during the actual time I was supposed to have it, didn't at all. Yes, this is normal...your cycle may be a little irregular over the next few months even because of the hormonal changes as well. I was told to be extra careful about pregnancy during this time because bc may not be enough with the changes going on.

I was required to stop all birth control 4 weeks before surgery because of the chance of blood clots. My surgeon and OB/GYN made sure of that. However, I also got my TOM the day after surgery as well. I could not tell you whether or not it was supposed to come because I am irregular, but I did find it strange that I got it the next morning.

I too started the day after surgery which was two weeks early. The surgeron's assistant said that it wasn't uncommon for the stress of surgery to "induce" the TOM.

Yes. My doctor told me that my TOM could be erratic for a month or two after surgery. Told me to be careful reference birth control (we use it anyway) in light of that.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
