HEy everyone. I was wondering if anyone else had late periods after the sleeve. I'm about 7 weeks post op. had a period about 2 weeks after surgery and was expecting it again 6 days ago. I'm starting to panic. I was thinking w the rapid weight loss maybe that's y I'm late. My husband had a vasectomy after our second child, but heard those tubes sometimes grow back. Really hoping to hear this is normal after the rapid weight loss.

Yea l am almost 2 weeks late! Had my normal cycle which was 3 days post op last month. This month nothing and I am super regular. No prego scare so it must be the rapid weight loss

It is definitely causing great anxiety with me. After my surgery I had it for two weeks, then it started two weeks later. It has been screwed up ever since then. My cramps are severly first.

Yes, this is common. You can also have heavier periods ( I know, who wants to hear that!) Mine has been early, late, split up, you name it, since the surgery.

Having surgery caused my cycle to come a week early the first month and a week late the second month...I completely understand feeling panicked!!

gosh what's that??? just kidding! my LMP was November 4, 2011 and i wasn't sure what to expect post surgery. I'm only 48 but if i'm probably pre menopausal. Went for annual and everything checks out ok so maybe Aunt Flo will show up and maybe she won't. After 35 years, i can't really say that I miss it. Its been kind of nice not having to deal with it, however; i stay prepared just in case. Now that i've had surgery and my hormones are doing something different i'll let you know if she shows up :)

I had a period every two weeks the first three months post op. Prior to that I hadn't had one in 3 or 4 months due to PCOS. I started using NuvaRing a little over a month ago and things have finally gotten back on track. I haven't kept track of how many days between cycles, but I know a few days after I remove the ring I get it and that's good enough for me. No chance of a baby right now anyway!

Did you have to have it removed or was it just time for it to come out?

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
