So, my thighs constantly rub together and burn holes in my jeans. I was wondering for those who are post op- at what point did you notice your thighs stopped rubbing together? Is this even a reality or just a pipe dream?

I am about 7 weeks post op and down about 30 pounds. But I have yet not notice any difference in rubbage.

Still pre-op, but I so hope this can be a reality. I can't tell you how many pair of jeans my thigh's have worn out. :-(

I'm down 35 pounds. I notice now that my thighs rub but there is no more discoloration and my hair is growing back. That's crazy. And TMI. Sorry!

OMG - so funny! I needed this tonight! My besties and I refer to these situations as a "blow out".

When you find out a size/weight when this stops...let me know....I would like to add this as a "goal" on my post-op road to thin. Ha ha!

I think it depends alot on how you carry your weight. My inner thighs are the horror zone...lol. I am very close to goal and yet they touch still. I look good in jeans, but nekkid - icky.

I have a plastic surgeon consult and intend to ask some very specific questions - like what will take for me to not have my thighs touch!

My thighs stopped touching a long way before I reached near goal, and I have always had big thighs. I'm sure it depends on your stature and genetics as to when it will happen in your journey. Still, I have been glowing for onths every time I walk a long distance and here the silence of unrubbing thighs.

This is funny because yesterday when I was walking to the mailbox I noticed I didn't hear the long swishing sounds of my thighs rubbing together anymore. The sounds are still there but they have become short quick little swishes because they don't touch as long or as hard. I was overjoyed at the little victory I felt over it. I believe my thighs will always touch some just the way I am built, even when I was 115 lbs I didn't have the gap of sunshine shining between my thighs like some women do lol

Ha! We call it "chub rub"! I don't know when I stopped blowing out my crotches, but it did happen. All of my jeans are in tact! ;)

@ yay for me: I was actually just talking to my boss about having VSG the other day and she asked me if I've started to make a Goals or a what I want to change 1st list and I told her "I want to lose enough weight to be able to wear a pair of corduroy pants and not start a fire between my legs when I walk" and we laughed so hard she was crying almost pee'd her pant's and I couldn't believe what I had just said out loud, we work at a clothing store and currently have some corduroy pants and we just crack up every time we see them now.

I am really hoping that one day after surgery my dream of corduroy pants will come true.......LOL :}~

Funny thing is I noticed a few weeks ago that my thighs weren't rubbing together anymore when I walk. If you're looking for a precise size, for me it was size 14, under 196 lbs. I've always had big thighs, my main form of exercise now is walking and cycling. I guess those miles under my sneakers are paying off.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
