Does anyone else get cold super easy after surgery?

I used to tolerate the cold with no issue, but now I walk around my house in a hoodie and sweatpants. and even sleep in that at times. That is something I previously would have never done. I hate the restriction, but my god, I am always cold now.

I'm more of the opposite, I used to always be cold prior to surgery, AC could not be lower than 77, but now I put it at 75 to feel slightly cooler. Now outside in the 60s makes me feel cold, while before lower 70s required a cardigan.

it's really common. Something about the surgery evidently affects your inner thermostat. I had that issue the first few months after surgery, but I don't any more. For some people, though, it's permanent.

We are smack in the worst of an English winter, its freezing and snow is on the ground. My heating is at max and I am freezing cold all day. I sit with a hot water bottle on my lap and a fluffy blanket over me. When I am busy I am warm enough but unless I am in bed, I go back to cold again. I hope I will manage the cold better next year

Yes! I'm also feeling the cold 14 months out from my sleeve. I need three layers minimum inside now if I'm sitting doing nothing. I really hope it isn't permanent.

YES I used to be a polar bear. I never even wore socks around the house during the winter, never wore sweaters, etc. Now I sleep in socks & sweaters, I'm constantly cold. Though I kind of hope this means I'll tolerate California heat better

I loved the cold before surgery. Would love to sleep in 20 degree weather. Right now its 71 degrees here in Florida and i am freezing. Its kinda pi$$ing me off lol

The outside weather doesn't effect me quite as back as the AC does.

But my husband is one of those people who says, we live in south Florida, so we never need the heat... It was in the 30s a few nights, so in the house it was like 63, I was freezing. I had blankets, a hood, pants...

I hope this doesn't last.

Yep & i still do. I’m the one running down the freezer, meat & dairy aisles in the supermarket. I get so cold it’s like it almost burns. It’s the lack of insulation (fat) and your body doesn’t have to work as hard when you’re doing every day tasks or being more active.

Yep. If the temperature drops below 25 Celsius, I'm looking for a jacket. Walked into a theatre for a show last night (it's mid Summer here) and the air-con temp took my breath away. Foolishly didn't think to bring a jacket. Thankfully a mate gave me a long sleeve shirt he'd brought as an extra layer or I'd have been miserable!

Yes! I now sleep in socks, jacket, and sometimes even shoes. My boyfriend doesn’t mind bc it means I get to cuddle more for warmth 😉

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
