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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
