Freezing after gastric bypass
cismith54 posted:
Hi everyone,
I am 58 and 11 years post gastric bypass. My diabetes is gone, high blood pressure was gone but going up a little, and my sleep apnea is gone BUT I AM FREEZING ALL THE TIME!!! I am actually looking forward to the HOT FLASHES of menopause. I have not mentioned it to my doc yet but after doing some reading today I think I will as I will be going on an Alaska cruise/tour in June. I don't want to be miserable. If anyone has had some success in overcoming this, please advise.

I lost 60 pounds due to digestive issues and since the weight loss I am ALWAYS freezing. I am feeling somewhat better but I am blaming the temperature issues on the weight loss. Hate the winter, cannot tolerate being out in the cold.

Do check with your doctor. It's possible the discomfort could be the result of thyroid or other change.
