Hi all. I had my surgery 4 months ago and a week later I got my period, and I’ve had it ever since. So nearly 4 months of bleeding. I’ve been to the Dr today and been referred to gynocology but was wondering if anyone has experienced similar?

Same It's been about 70 days for me but it didn't start right after surgery. Just a couple months ago.

Good luck! :D

Mine started the day after surgery and it was on and off for what felt like forever. My GYN said it was coming from the dumping of estrogen stored in my fat cells and that it should start to taper out soon. I’m 7 months out and didn’t have a period prior due to my IUD. It Is getting better but the first couple of months were pretty awful with how random and long it was.

You girls make me happy I'm years past "the CHANGE". But I got the mood swings, the "weepies", the "What did I do and why at my age (then 72) did I ask for this to happen?" & the bottom line " This was Elective surgery and I went and did THIS?", for a while I was a Storming Norma, eventually this flood of Fat containing Hormones melted and dissipated but TOMKITTEN ( my Son) said " Mama if I EVER get married remind me NOT to,pick a Menopausal woman with Teenaged Daughters- I couldn't live with another flood of Fem- min- nine Hormones!" Told him for the right gal He might do it but he just shook his head and walked into the Next Room. Its been a year yesterday and things stay pretty smooth at Chez FRUSTR8 but for a while he wasn't sure whether to speak or risk being murdered where he stood! Didn't want to send me to the "Gyno" but wasn't sure a psychiatrist and a Rubber Room weren't Needed. So I'll testify it rocks you on your ear or rear before everything settles down. And NOW when I am 1/2 the size I started, 180 instead of 365+, feeling so much healthier, in sizes I wore when I graduated High School 56 years ago, getting second looks and even a few Wolf Whistles from guys ( yeah should be offended but it's thrilling to be an object for a second or 2) Frustr8 is Not Sorry for her RNY, did for me what ALL THOSE DIETS never did and I have renewed life and a FUTURE when I was 7/8ths of the way to die sadly obese. And my new motto will always be
THE REST OF MY LIFE WILL BE THE BEST OF MY LIFE- now and forever more!👵=😝👍🌈

I believe it's menopause. I bleed for a whole year, it was awful. And then finally after 53 yrs old one day it just stopped. Happiest day ever

You may want to make sure you are taking Iron. I was anemic when I menstruate. I have had a hysterectomy so I dont have to worry about that. Take care of yourself!

My Gym said big weight loss equal Estrogen shifts. Estrogen stores in fat cells so quick weight loss you get Estrogen spikes. I had an ablation 8 years ago and had 2months of a period. REALLY...

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
