No, I do not. I have only heard of one person on here who said she developed allergies post surgery. Of course it could just be a coincidence.

I had seasonal allergies and asthma before surgery. But I think I developed a shellfish allergy after surgery. I have an appointment with an allergist on Thursday, so we'll get to the bottom it for sure. But I was able to take the krill oil supplements before surgery and now I have a really bad reaction to them. Every time, it's worse. First it was a rash. Then it was a rash, headache and numb tongue. Then I took pills that I forgot to change out (they had merely touched the supplements) and I had rash, numb tongue, tingly lips, headache, and nausea. I now have an epi pen with me at all times and I'm not allowed to have any seafood at all until we figure out exactly what I'm allergic to (shrimp is easy to know, since krill are tiny shrimp). That might also include crab, lobster, and crawfish since they are all in the same shellfish type. But we'll see for sure.

I've never heard of that. I have always had asthma but it has improved after the weight loss.

I have developed hayfever since my surgery. I had an allergic reaction to something a week after my surgery and was covered in painful hives for days, couldnt even put trousers on at one point. I’ve never had hayfever before and am really suffering this year, I guess it could be coincidence but I think it may be linked. I’m sure I read somewhere that the surgery can affect histamine production.

      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?
