I am 6 days post op and feeling better everyday. The surgery took longer than expected, and I spent 2 days recovering in the hospital. I have lost 10 lbs on the Stage 2 Full Liquids. Has anyone had any issues with keeping warm after surgery. I am normally warm blooded, but not so much since I got home. We live in the Pacific Northwest so the climate is relatively mild compared to the Midwest. I find myself turning up the thermostat and layering more clothes. I vaguely remember going through this when I had my Lap Band surgery in 2005. Also, my blood pressure is running higher than normal the past few days. It is not at crisis level, but is concerning long term. I have been in contact with my surgeon and his staff. We have walked through every key areas after surgery; Protein, hydration; Vitamins, supplements, exercise. I got an 'atta boy' but no answers. I will be tracking my BP until my follow-up appointment week. In the meantime, I have an appointment with PCP tomorrow. Anyone have a similar experience? My BP should be going down.

I’m day one post op on a gastric bypass revision, but so far not feeling the temperature shift yet (I know it’s pretty common).

I used to be warm blooded, but after a sleeve and RNY revision I'm always the cold one.

Yes, I am always cold now. Before losing weight I was always hot and sweaty. Now I have to bundle up to stay warm.

I was ALWAYS the one turning down the thermostat until I got a bypass and now I freeze all the time. Since you are eating so few calories your body is trying to conserve energy by not producing a lot of body heat.

My BP peaked the day after my surgery, but after a week was running where it used to. Walk as much as you can, the exercise will help bring your BP down.

Hang in there, everything will get easier!

Saw my doctor's PA yesterday about my blood pressure. She performed a thorough check-up and found nothing unusual. Over the past couple of days my BP has been trending to more normal levels. It looks like I had spike similar to your experience.
