Unhappy Is It Normal...

For your first (monthly gift) to be wacky after weightloss surgery? My Dr. said it's normal because of hormone balance can get off, but I'm 47 and wondering if it might be menopause. I spotted every third day one week then I've been steady for 8 days now. This has never happened to me before and I was wondering if any of you can remember going through this.

I know this is a delicate topic, but any insite is welcome

Kier's got it right - i was bout the same age as you when i had surgery, and my periods came back after having been gone for a few months. it stayed around for 6 months, and then became less regular. and then STOPPED!!! now that i'm not as young as i used to be.

The first thing my gyno asks me if I say my period is wacky is if I had just lost weight... so yes, its normal.

I have fibroids that give me problems, but I was back on track for a whole 2 yrs before I had my RNY in January. Unfortunately though I have had the good ole problems since I got home from the hospital. I never thought it may be from the weight loss too!!!
