Gastric sleeve post-op dizzy



Recommended Posts

Mine isn’t related to weight loss but aortic insufficiency. I get dizzy from laying down to sitting and sitting to standing. Sometimes I get dizzy just sitting still. I would definitely bring it up to your doctor.

I have it fairly badly, too, but I mostly just stand and wait for it to pass now. My doctors said nothing was wrong (after blood tests and a stress test) and asked me to try more electrolytes. It still happens, but not nearly as often.

If your doctor won't listen to you, get a second opinion. You are definitely entitled to finding someone who is willing to listen to you.

Check your blood pressure. BP can drop significantly after surgery. I've known several others who have the same dizziness. Their surgeons attribute it to lower blood pressure.

Here's a hint. Don't go directly to standing. If you're laying down, sit for a few seconds on the side of the bed before standing.
