Anyone else experience this? I walked 3 miles this AM. Notice this. Not sure when it appeared. Doesn’t hurt, even to touch. Don’t remember any injury to it.

Im a little over a month out of a sleeve and am otherwise doing great

You're losing your fat and shock- absorbing layer, so your flesh could hit your boNes quicker. Y'all mine giant petechiae or bloody freckles, just went through another blood lab but they never said my platelets were awfully fragile. Oh whatever, I at least know I'm not an abuse victim unless I'm doing IT to MYSELF!

I get bruises all the time. Always have. Random places on arms and legs mostly where I guess I bump against stuff without realizing it. I always attributed it to being Anemic.

I fence (as in en garde) starting about a year post sleeve. When I had my mammogram, I had so many bruises that the tech asked me if I was safe at home!!!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
