Ever since I had RNY gastric bypass 14 years ago,

Ever since I had RNY gastric bypass 14 years ago, I’ve had these episodes no one can seem to explain. I’ll start to feel unfocused/can’t concentrate. My mouth, particularly my tongue, gets numb and tingly, as do my fingertips. I get weak and shaky and feel like I’m about to pass out. For about 20 minutes, I’m freezing cold/can’t get warm, then the next 20 I’m so hot, sweat runs down my back and I can’t cool off. And for the duration, I just feel terrible. But they pass, usually about after 45 mins, and I am back to normal.
I do have chronic anemia since the surgery, Vitamin B deficiency, and chronic inflammation most recently attributed to lupus. But no one has been able to help me with this “Numb Mouth”, as my family calls it.

Hi, I m 42 yrs old and I have recently discovered that I have fibroid and that I might need a hysterectomy. What are the prepration for the operation for example, do we have a urine bag before or after surgery? I had the RNY Gastric Bypass 2 and half years ago and recently just had my tummy tuck and would the operation go ahead?

I am a 27 y/o female who had gastric bypass RNY surgery 3 years ago. Since then, I have had several but sparse reactive hypoglycemic episodes. However, since I had my son 6 weeks ago, I have been having these episodes about every 2-3 days, sometimes more often. Is there a reason for this maybe and could I be affecting my newborn son since I am breastfeeding him?
