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.
