My Sister had Sleeve Surgery 1/6/20 and has terrible Mood Swigs and Emotional out burst. One minute she is happy the next she is so full of ANGER she wants to kill someone. Is anyone else having this issue?

It's the second Wednesday of the month so I could go for a spontaneous mood swing right about now

How about it's winter and I'm cold... Why Meeeeee

Or the end of Logan was far too much to handle when the cross was repositioned as an X... the flood gates opened

And my favorite my eyebrows are "sisters" and not "twins"...

I lost a coping mechanism. Binge eating was my skill I used to keep my emotions in check, and now that I no longer have the ability to do that, I am suddenly faced with EMOTIONS.

It sucks, but I've been actively going to therapy and finding it very helpful. I'm learning new skills (creative wise, I'm knitting and doing things for fun that I never would have tried before) and just learning in general. Yes, I still have horrible mood swings sometimes, but it gets a little easier?

You just gotta hang in there and do your best, and all the support you can get and give is even better.

a lot of women experience mood swings that first few weeks or months after weight loss surgery. A big part of it is supposedly related to the fact that estrogen is stored in fat cells. During the rapid weight loss period, that estrogen starts being released and floods your system - hence, mood swings. It should all eventually stabilize..

It could also be low blood sugar having an effect. I know I get really cranky when I havnt had at least something at regular intervals. I also was never good at eating on time. Also since the hunger isnt there the same as before, forgetting to eat is very easy. For me I drink Meal Replacement or Protein Shakes no matter if Im hungry or not and it keeps my blood sugar on an even keel.

I have had some mood swings, for sure. I have PCOS and I know my hormones are way more regulated. My period actually comes when it's supposed to, every month. And yes, we all used food as a coping mechanism. It's an adjustment, but I promise you, it doesn't last long and gets better. She will be ok; just be supportive and kind :)

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
