Hi everyone my name is lizzy, just had my VSG about 6 months ago so far I’ve lost 90 pounds and I’m feeling great!!!! My only struggle is taking down these Vitamins I’ve tried it multiple different time and it all seems to make me nauseous still , from pill capsules to chewables… idk what else do I force my self to take it but I just hate the nausea part. My hair did fall out so I had to cut it short which helped and now it doesn’t fall as much , since my hair was long I felt the heaviness of it and now I just feel light weight all around lol . I do have a question though… why is that I feel cold all the sudden ? It’s winter time now in Las Vegas and my body cannot stand this cold I’m always cold and achy from it …. Any ideas pls thank you!!!!

a lot of people feel cold all the time after surgery. For some it's temporary, for others it's permanent. Some of it is probably due to you have less "insulation" than you did before, but because that cold feeling can sometimes start within weeks of surgery (before most people have lost much weight), I suspect something about the surgery affects your inner thermostat, too. In my case, it was temporary - but some people are always freezing and have to wear extra clothes!

Have you tried the vitamin patches? I've heard others say they had good luck with them.

Being cold is a common complaint. I once saw a picture of a gal wearing a down vest and long sleeve shirt. She showed the thermometer - it was 105 degrees. Maybe an electric throw blanket, or heating pad will help?

I use various Patches for sleep and so I was curious about this as well, but my surgeon advised against these specifically indicating the absorption is just not consistently vthere enough to meet our needs.

Hmm... Have you tried taking your Vitamins at mealtime? I know that food can buffer the tummy.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
