I can't say I had numbness...I had deep muscle cramps in both thighs for the first week or so...but I'd been getting shots in both thighs to prevent blood clots. Numbness...maybe nerve related? Do you sleep in one position a lot?

I did have this. I am 8 months out and had it for the first three month. It was when I was standing and my left thigh would fall asleep. It had something to do with being on my back on the operating room table. I googled it and it is common in about 30% of weight loss surgeries. I was fine after awhile but very nerve racking. Good luck!

Good morning. I had surgery 6/17 and a few days later my right upper thigh woke me up one night and it felt like a bee sting when I touched it. Now its just tingling. I immediately went to my doctor and they said its a compressed nerve. It more than likely happened during surgery. Every day it is getting better but I keep waking up at night because it is annoying! I also lay on my back and it happens. Go to your physician and ask them for medicine for your thigh. Its not going to go away over night so just be prepared. Don't stress and call your doctor. Since you are post op, you need to call your physician/surgeon for anything that is not normal....

You definitely should talk to your surgeon about any numbness in your legs. That's one of the first signs of a blood clot. So, I would get that ruled out quickly! Nothing to mess with.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
