I had my surgery in December. The past few weeks I have been so cranky I can barely stand myself. I know there are a lot of hormone issues with rapid weight loss, but my weight loss has slowed down and has been slow since the surgery.
Everyone and everything is getting on my last nerve! I am even short with my closest friends.
It was so bad the other night we were eating out and my husband handed me the drink menu and said, "Here, have a drink." (I don't usually drink)
What can I do? I am not against medicating to get over this hurdle. I already take anti depressants. I must do something before I lose all my friends!
I would start by seeing your PCP to have labs done. Get your thyroid checked, your B12, vitamin D and iron. And anything else your doc recommends.
Then I'd see the doc that prescribes your meds. They may need adjusted.
Are you in therapy? If not, I'd think about that. I doubt you're dealing with the typical hormonal thing this far post opl
