Feeling cold, does it get better with time or a forever thing?



Recommended Posts

So a lot of us get cold easily. Does it stabilize after a year or more or are you always cold wearing a sweater or jacket when others are not?

I never had that, so maybe it's just a bypass thing. (I was sleeved)

No, not just bypass. I was that way with the sleeve, too. I have found that my coldness now is inconsistent. I'll be cold for a while (maybe even hours), then warm up and take off the sweater. An hour later I'm cold again. So maybe I'm transitioning out of perpetual refrigeration? (Definitely not menopause and too far into the process for it to be estrogen releases from all the excess fat.)

I got my surgery during the winter so maybe take it with a grain of salt...but I was VERY cold for the first three months and now at 6 months it's not as bad. Hang in there!

I'm a year out - still cold all the time.

On the bright side, I’m enjoying the heck out of this Texas summer. Just baking by the pool on 100° days with no complaints! 😄

I was sleeved a year ago and I do remember being cold in the first few months but haven't noticed it since. What I do notice now though is that my bony butt often hurts when I sit. Never had that issue before with all the extra padding on my backside.

I’m like kcgirl— a year out and usually cold. On the bright side, I used to sweat like a pig and now rarely do. I’m even cold at the gym sometimes!

My surgeon told me being cold could be a byproduct of the surgery . At least I’ll save on ac. I’m always hot hot 🥵

Are you one of the IF people?

Just asking because for me it depends if I'm in the fasting window or in the eating window. I tend to feel colder until I start eating, veins hiding and all and as soon as I start eating sometimes around noon I feel warm, veins popping out.

No, I tend to eat mini meals all day long, but I have noticed that my thermostat goes up when I eat.

I was ALWAYS cold in the beginning. Didn't help i had it in the fall. Now i run a bit cooler than before. I actually sweat more and get hot but i still stay cool easier than before. Ill probably go back to being cold once i lose this regain but if I'm fasting or low carbing I'll feel cold easier.

I had surgery on Monday. I am cold! I am glad though. You see... being a big girl I was always hot. I could not enjoy outdoor summer activities at all. Fairs, carnivals, outdoor concerts, were just not tolerable to me. Today when I got home from the hospital I was able to sit outside in the summer heat and relax :) Felt good!
