My first one was horrible, heavy and cramps. I thought I would need to get a transfusion after. Make sure you are eating foods with high Iron to compensate. I used a warm compress for cramps. The next few months were heavier but not as bad and now at 8 months it is almost back to my normal.

I had the same experience as 2Bsmaller18...it was bad. It's the hormones that are out of wack. You know the portion of our stomach that was removed played a major part in hormone production, so it just takes time to get right again. I'm 8 months post op and they are normal and I'm on birth control again. I just took pamprin and Tylenol. Hang in there lady 🤗

Thanks for the heads up! I started the day after surgery and it was regular. So I should be starting in a week, kinda nervous now!

Mine came about 1 week after surgery and it was the worst cramps I ever experienced. I literally had to take the Percocet my doc gave me for the surgical recovery pain. I couldn't eat/drink any thing for 2 days. Vomited any thing I tried to consume. The second one however was ok. Tylenol controlled the pain.

I'm having surgery in November/December and this hasn't even crossed my mind. Thank you for the heads up!! Just changing diets has affected mine.

Just the fact that I even got my period was a surprise. I hadn’t had it in MONTHS prior to surgery, and only a handful of times 2-3 years before that. It lasted over a week (when it only used to last 4-ish days when I did get it).

Since then, it’s come like clockwork every single month (almost 2 years now post-op).

I guess I wasn’t pre-menopausal after all...just overweight 🙄

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
