What have you tried to help?

there's nothing you can really do about it other than keep bundled up! I was cold all the time for awhile, but I don't notice it anymore (I'm six years out). At some point, it went away. For some people it seems to be a permanent thing, though..

Im 14 months post rny. I used to be one that was hot and sweat year round. Now Im freezing. And we live on the Gulf Coast..temps already mid 80s and Im still cold. I just double up blankets. Wear socks to bed. Sometimes I use a heating pad, especially when I have a Migraine or back pain which is nearly everyday. And I was curious to see how Id fair with walking during the heat and Im barely sweating! Its not bothering me one bit. Ive even started running a bit! And I havent run anywhere since I was 15!!!! Im 49 now!

I haven't had surgery yet, but I have found that whenever I am eating less I am cold. I tend to be cold unless I am moving around. I don't know if this applies to people after surgery, but once you are able, I would try moving around a bit, even just walking and swinging your arms. I will get on my treadmill for about ten minutes when I get cold and that warms me up for a few hours. Again, I don't know if this will work after surgery; I'm hoping it does because I'm already cold all the time!

This happens to me too! I’ve always thought it was related to the metabolism slow down and low calorie intake. I live in a moderate temp state, but even when it hit the low 80s I didn’t feel the need to turn on the AC like I would in the past.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
