Sweating less after intense workout



Recommended Posts

I started working out pretty hard 6 months before my surgery. I would sweat profusely within minutes of starting. I'm right at 3 months post-op and I'm doing my same cycles with cardio and weight training but with more intensity and longer duration and I'm sweating a lot less. Like just my collar is wet....not my whole shirt like in days pass.. anyone else run into this? When i work out I like to walk out of the gym looking like I got dunked in a pool....

That's reassuring to hear! I also started working out pretty intensely about six months pre-op and I'm hoping I have a similar post-op experience to your own!!!

Your body is a furnace & the more weight you carry the harder it has to work & the hotter it gets. Sweating is how your body cools itself. As you get fitter your body doesn’t have to exert itself & overheat as much so you’ll sweat less. Plus you’re not carrying around as much weight.

Just wait until you lose enough to start to feel the cold. Brrr. You’re losing all that fat insulation.

Already feeling that already. My house use to be set at no higher than 66 cause I stayed so hot. Now it rarely drops below 68.

I hardly break a sweat at all anymore when I exercise. I think it's normal to sweat less the lighter you get - you have less insulation.

Absolutely - I haven't needed anti-perspirants/deodorants for years. Likewise, my resting (and active) heartrate is much lower - always gets the attention of nurses when they take my vitals.

Take Wellbutrin. It causes excessive sweating without even working out. Just kidding but seriously did you also change any medications cause that really could be why.

I quit taking all meds after surgery and started protonix. I sweat like fool at work still but the gym I don't get the same results

Are you drinking enough Water? If you’re working out, it should be more than 64oz

      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!
