I just can't get warm!



Recommended Posts

Sleeved 21st Jan, approx 7kg down. On soft foods, getting 650-820ish calories on board. Hitting av. 68g Protein and 1.75litres Fluid a day. Walking almost every day (missed one). But of an afternoon/evening I just cannot get warm. Sat here with OH and kids in T-Shirts and I'm in a ski jacket with legs cold in jeans, feet cold in socks, and nose/fingers really cold.

Do I need to worry? What should I do differently? If 'No' and 'nothing', will this go away?

It seems to be extremely common. Some sort of metabolic or hormonal reaction. Weeks 2-6 were really bad for me, my fingers and toes would regularly be numb with cold but it has gotten better. I am 3 months out now and while I am colder than I used to be pre-surgery but it is better than those first few weeks. If it lasts it will be nice to not sweat like a pig all summer though.

Thank you for that! The silver lining sounds like bliss after years of balancing the bingo wings Vs boiling alive equation for work every heat wave. If it's 3-4 weeks of teeth gritting then binning that trauma as trade off I'll be fine :-)

I didn't realize it at the time because the weather was cold here, but I apparently had the cold feelings too a couple of weeks post-op. They only lasted two weeks.

I’ve been soooo cold since surgery...and i’m about 3.5 months post op. Im always wearing sweaters/hoodies and warm socks. Sometimes i’ll pull the hoddie hood over my head while i sleep at night.

But like someone said above, i’ll take the chilliness vs the profuse sweating i used to suffer from pre-op any day.

I am always cold now.

My surgeon says I lost a lot of my insulation. Not sure there is a fix. I’m over 14 months out, labs are ok. 🤷‍♀️

That's so weird, I didnt think about the coldness as being from the surgery. Figured it was just the weather. I had my surgery on the 31st of January.

I think that you're the only one Kathy lol...It started for me after losing about 30-35 lbs and yes I researched it and it does state we are losing our cushion (fat), I'm cold now everyday and before surgery I was hot flashing like crazy and could never sleep in socks, now I sleep in socks. I try to bring a throw to work everyday...It's a good thing to me 😁

2 years?! That just seems like forever. I suppose I should be glad that there's a possible end in sight?

I was cold before surgery and now I'm freezing, ALL THE TIME! I walk around my house in layers, with socks and slippers. I am never without a blanket, like a toddler with a woobie. I work in my home office with a space heater and a lap blanket. I even ordered a heated mouse because my hand got so cold that I couldn't type.

I've been told it's pretty normal. At night I'm FREEZING. I've sweated out the husband and son because I'm so cold I'll turn the heat up and still be bundled up while they're dying from the heat.
