Sudden Development. What is This?



Recommended Posts

Today I discovered that I have some weird funky brownish, orangeish, iodine splotchy looking things on my hands. What in the world are, and where did they come from? I read that it could be b-12 or Vitamin c deficiency, but I take both of those vites daily.

I attached a photo to this post. I put circles around the discolorations. I was sleeved on April 8th, 2013. Thoughts?

Wow, that's interesting. It couldn't be a bruise, right?

I i find that I bruise much easier now but on the palm of your hands is strange. Almost looks like jaundice. Do the whites of your eyes appear yellow?

MM the Preacher says: When in doubt, check it out! Better to feel a little foolish by contacting your doctor than wind up with a serious problem! Lets us know what you find out, please!

Have you been out in the sun at all? Applied any sunscreen or self tanner to yourself or kids? Had contact with any fruit or fruit juices or peppers? Any contact with bleach? Squished any stink bugs (weird, but they release a chemical when you squish them)? It looks like you've had contact with an oxidizing agent of some sort. Try putting some lemon juice on it to see if it fades.

I don't think it's anything to be running to the doc about unless you have other symptoms, but definitely would mention it to them on your next visit.

Woke up this morning and the spots were pretty much faded. Not sure what the heck they were or why they just suddenly popped up yesterday. They weren't a stain or anything. I did take some extra Vitamin c last night. And, yesterday I did drink some lemon Water for the first time in forever, and also some apple juice (for regularity) the night before. I don't use self tanner (I'm too pasty & pale and would end up looking like an Oompa Loompa.) Not sure if that has anything to do with it???

I have an appt w/ my surgeon on May 24th so I'll mention it then. Everything else is totally fine. No yellowing of any other part of the skin or eyes. My liver was perfect during surgery. No problems otherwise. Just strange. Very, very strange. I'm keeping an eye on it, and if it comes back and/or gets darker, then I'll give the doctor a call. Thanks! :)

Off topic: But unfortunately, looking like an Oompa Loompa doesn't stop ENOUGH people from using self-tanner! lol!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
