I am in the US but I think thyroid issues are thyroid issues? I had a sleeve done two year and four months ago. Everything was fantastic for almost two years. In fact I was getting a little too thin. Boy what would I do to be back in that situation right now!
Just before the two year mark my thyroid went out of whack; weight jumped to 155, lost 5 and hovered around the 150 mark until a few months later. Thyroid out of whack; weight up to 159, went back and forth from the 159 to 155 but not an ounce below 155. At this point I am having to get a size larger in clothes! Feb this year again numbers are off and my weight jumped to 165, still off through March and I find myself at 175. Now it's getting ugly and I am extremely depressed. Because it seems that no matter what I do I can't get the weight off.
Appointment with Bariatric P.A. (don't get to see surgeon anymore) and she tells me to ask my endocrinologist to do some hormone tests. She is not very nice but finally agreed to do the insulin resistance test. Said if I was insulin resistance she could put me on Metformin for a few months to see if that helps.
I am insulin resistance so I am now on 1000 mg of Metformin. Still having to eat almost strict post surgery meals at about 3 months out. But finally lose 10 pounds. Weighed today and 5 pounds are back on!
I am depressed and desperate. My son is getting married next month and I don't want this extra 25 lbs on. It seems after losing 100 lbs I should be able to get this off but I am at my wits end.
Any advice will be truly appreciated!!
Thank you all so very much!
