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.

      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
