Does anyone get hot and cold sweats? I can't imagine working like this I'm soak and wet all day and I'm now 4 weeks post-op
I don't remember having that, but I wonder if it's related to the "hormone dump" that a lot of people tend to get after surgery (??) (many women have screwed up menstrual cycles the first few months post-surgery due to that). If that's what it is, it should stabilize after awhile..
It might also be a very healthy reaction of your body to sweat out accumulated ( now freed and circulating in your bloodstream formerly fat-stored toxins ) .
Youre cold cuz you're losing your protective fat covering ! You'll get used to carrying a jacket or cardigan everywhere and dressing warmer eventually !
I really like to encourage my body to sweat once in a while by sauna-ing , sitting in a hot tub or taking a hot yoga class . Clears the skin ... makes ya look and feel lighter happier and more energetic ( of course it's hell on the hair-do lol )
I have hot flashes all the time but I am peri menopausal. After surgery I was frozen all the time, it pretty much happens to us all, men & woman, losing the weight and the hormone changes we are cold even in the dead heat of summer for the first 1-2 yrs.
The only time I have had "cold" sweats is because I ate too much sugar and got RH (Reactive Hypoglycemia). I ended up being lactose intolerant after my RNY and didn't figure it out and was having a Starbucks Grande Vanilla latte and getting major reactions form the milk.
I hope this passes for you but don't be surprised as you lose the weight that this winter you will be extraordinarily cold.
Best of luck
