Long period



Recommended Posts

I had the sleeve surgery done 9/23. My period started the day after surgery and have not stopped. I am on depo birth control shots so I had no period before. Is it normal to be bleeding this long due to surgery?

Estrogen is stored in fat, so as you start to loose fat, it is not uncommon to have some hormonal shifts, which could cause abnormal bleeding. With that said, you should probably check in with your provider who prescribed your deposit.

Good luck to you!

Keep a close eye on it.....I thought I started my cycle in late Dec, 2020 (about a week before my revision, sleeve to bypass) and since I have PCOS and the flow was light, I didn't think anything of it until August when it still didn't stop. I had a endometrial biopsy----came back as cancer. I had a total hysterectomy in early October. Cancer had spread beyond the uterus to an ovary and peritoneum- Stage 3B, just had round 2 of 6 Chemo cycles and after that I have 5 weeks of radiation.......so if your cycle is not normal for you.....check it out!

Hi there, I had a gastric bypass on 29th November and bleeding started a few days later. Still bleeding. Been on depo for 9 months and had no periods at all. Did your bleeding resolve or did your doctor prescribe you something to help with it. Tried asking the nurse when I went for my B12 jab and she wasn't interested.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
