I'm 5 weeks post-OP vsg and I'm having a period every other week. I've always been constant as far as getting it 28 days. Is this happening to any of you?

this isn't all that uncommon. A lot of people get hormone dumps and their systems go haywire for awhile (affects some people's moods, too). Some people have said it's because estrogen is stored in fat, and when you lose weight really fast, all the extra estrogen is released. I don't know if that's true, but it makes sense. It should straighten itself out in a couple of months.

Same thing happened to me. My GYN couldn’t explain it. It worked itself out after a few months though.

I was told this from my PA as well. I am however post surgical menopause 13 years. I was very emotional and she said it's from stored estrogen in the fat.

Same happened to me. I'm 3 mo post op.. periods are getting more spaced out now, but they're also really light compared to what they used to be? Not complaining about that bit...however cramping/tiredness seems to be worse which blows.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
