I'm less than 6 months out of surgery, but I'm having serious back issues and need to have my huge hanging pannus removed. I've been experiencing terrible back pain for months. Went for xrays and my spine is now "misaligned". I fell on an icy sidewalk 12 years ago and fractured my spine in 3 places. It has always hurt, but after WLS the pain got worse and worse. I thought it was just the change in my center of balance, walking differently, carrying the weight differently, but maybe I injured my back again and am just not aware of doing it. Or maybe it's a combination of both. I seem to be losing weight everywhere but in the stomach area. Physical therapy just made matters worse. I've lost about 100 lbs and i'm using a cane to get around. I am miserable. I know it is customary to wait at least a year or until weight has stabilized, but I need to do something now.
