I dealt with this for about 2 weeks now on and off. Mainly in my calf area and also swelled. I thought it could have been a blood clot so i went to the ER last week and they did a ultrasound as well from the top of my leg all the way down and no clot. they said either dehydration and or just your body going thru changes with the surgery. tho my surgery was only 1 month ago. I did buy this massager for my calves and love it. I feel better after using it.

I remember reading somewhere that that's happened to people (don't know how common it is, though). I believe it's temporary.

That's weird. I normally would have thought a blood clot but since that was already ruled out I don't know.

Are you guys walking a lot? Maybe too much sitting?

Like when you sit on the toilet too long and your legs go numb? 😂😂😂😂

Have either of you asked the actual surgeon about it?

Me too! Its only my right calf, its been giving me problems since a couple days post op. Like liveaboard15 said, I believe it to be dehydration since I sometimes struggle with getting all my fluids in. Mine actually feels like a knot sometimes but there is nothing there so could be low potassium as well. Hard to say but no blood clot.

I also have a similar pair of leg massager's like pictured above and if my right calf acts up I usually get those out and put on both legs and it does help. Feels better afterwards, I usually do mine in the evening and go to bed afterwards. Especially if I have swelling.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
