Stuttering. My extra gift

So I have brought with me a souvenir from my great 11 day adventure of undergoing VSG. A stutter.

I'm not going to freak out about it. I have an appointment to get my bile drain out tomorrow so I will talk to my doctors about it then but I was wondering if anyone else ever dealt with a temporary stutter after surgery?

I haven't heard of anyone having that.  I'm glad you're seeing your surgeon tomorrow.  Please post about how it goes and what he/she says about the stuttering.

Good luck!

Sometimes if my blood sugar gets too low, I have trouble speaking, I stutter, and really cannot process information very well.  Thankfully, this has only happened a few times. Now I stay hydrated and always have a snack around. I know you are still early out from surgery though. I have not had surgery yet but it's just what comes to mind.

I really hope you get it figured out! You've really had a hard time! Good luck!

I actually have known one person who stuttered after a (non wls) surgery and was diagnosed with conversion disorder, brought about by stress. Other than that I've not heard of it with anyone else.

I've heard of it with blue diamond almond milk as a side affect?

Never heard of it, but I would line up a visit with a dr that was not the surgeon as well.

What kind of pain meds have you been on recently?  I ask because I take Tramadol and Flexeril for pain from spine issues.  For the past couple of months, I have been confusing words when I speak, inserting the wrong word in sentences, etc.

But now I am starting to stutter!  It is mild, and I can identify it when it starts to happen.  But it is alarming to me just the same.  I need to talk to my pain doc and see what is going on as I am certain it is one of those two meds.

For joy! What a pain for a great communicator! Maybe it will go away when you get less stressed and settle in a bit?
