Why am I Always So Cold? Freezing after Gastric Surgery

As an anemic, I'm cold by nature. It can never be too warm for me so imagine my surprise when I seemed to find myself getting even colder after having gastric surgery. I really didn't understand this change until my doctor (whom I do stalk on a regular basis and probably regrets ever performing surgery on me - but my insurance company pays him well) explained it to me.

Most bodies maintain a normal body temperature (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) by making and holding heat. When the dynamics of the body changes, such as during a weight loss surgery and the ensuing quick weight loss, then it's hard for a body to generate the heat it normally does. As such, many people experience chills after having gastric surgery.

One of the reasons you might experience that same cold feelings after your weight loss is because there is less fat in your body. Fat is important (Mom, you lied to me), but too much of anything can be unhealthy (Okay, Mom. I'm changing my number again). Anyway, when you lose that extra fat, it's sort of like taking the cotton out of your big thick coat. There's not much left to keep you warm then.

Another reason you might feel the need for some thick blankets is because your body is now producing less heat because you're smaller and don't need as much energy. Your body does think; that's the purpose of your brain you know. If there is no reason for it to use the big oven, then it might as well just use the microwave to heat things up.

Nobody likes being chilly, but in my opinion, a little temperature drop is more than worth getting healthy. Most individuals who have undergone gastric surgery say that their body temperatures become normal after a while. Just like you're adapting to your new lifestyle, your body has to adapt as well. Now that you've shed some of the weight, you can work out more and increase your body heat yourself. There are also other heat increasing activities you can do with your spouse, but I do believe this is a “G” rated website, just use your imagination, candles, and some Luther Vandross to stay warm.
