I had Gastric Bypass Surgery in 10/2011...My only regret (so far) is it took me so long to do it. However, there have been times recently that I am severely hot - then extremely cold. It's like having a really bad "hot flash" - where I am cold sweaty ... withing seconds of it going away, I am freezing. I don't know if this is from the GB Surgery of not. I really want to know if anyone else is having this problem.
Also, I sometimes, I get very light-headed for a few seconds and nauseated. It doesn't last very long but it is a little scary. I have not been able to link it to food or drink. I mentioned it to my Dr who said she thought it might be "anxiety" - she prescribed the very lowest does of Xanax. Not much help if any. Also using hormone therapy patches do not help...(I had a hysterectomy in 1997 so...according to my Dr., I should be through with menopause???) Any Advice??
