Just had bypass, now suffering during "time of month"



Recommended Posts

Hello all. I just had surgery on the fifth of this month, so I'm still in the liquid stage of the diet (soon I can move on to soft foods! Yay!). I just started my period yesterday, and my cramps are unbearable. This has happened to me before, albeit not often, and the only thing that has ever helped has been Advil. Obviously I can't take that anymore, but the Tylenol I've been taking really hasn't helped at all.

I'm wondering if anyone else has run across this problem, and if so (or even if not) if anyone has suggestions to help me ease this pain. Because it's 4:00AM and I can't sleep it's so bad :(

Honestly since I had surgery on Nov10th, I've gotten my period twice a month every month. The cramps have been awful. The nurse told me that changes in it are normal though because of hormones changing during weightloss.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
