I have pcos too! It's very common and I think having the sleeve will help you lose a lot of weight and losing weight will eventually help ease the pcos with time!

I have PCOS also, before surgery I NEVER had period on my own without meds to induce. I'm 4 months out and I just started on my own!! I'm so very hopeful that things will get better!

Yep. I'm your poster girl for PCOS! But, this surgery is changing that! Since surgery I've been having monthly, normal visits from Tom (Time of the Month). My insulin levels came back normal at my 6 month blood work, I was so totally excited! First time I've ever not been classified as pre-diabetic! My testosterone levels are normal (at 3 months post-op).

Have to be SUPER careful now. I really want to hit goal, and be there for at least 6 months before we try for a kiddo!

I was told by my Gyno before surgery that there was a very good chance I have PCOS( trouble losing weight, unwanted hair, really messed up long cycles and he did spot some cysts on my ovaries).

After the surgery within a few months my cycles became completely normal, 28 days like clock work. I still have some lingering signs of PCOS but I think it's improved greatly since I've lost the weight. I also just found out I'm 7 weeks pregnant. So there is that :)

I think it does take time for our bodies to realize the weight is gone and for the PCOS to start letting up, but it will happen, just hang in there.

      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
