Has anyone had weight loss surgery after being diagnosed with fibro?

Oct 07, 2016 1:49 PM

I'm having RNY in about 2 weeks and I'm really concerned about my pain tolerance afterward. I haven't had a surgery in the 4 years since I've had the fibro. I'm also concerned that I'm giving up my food for just being thin and in pain. Has anyone lost weight and had their fibro get better? My doctors don't know anyone in this situation.

Not after but I had mine before biut 12 yrs ago.i would suggest having a very serious and open conversation with your surgeon about pain control Before hand. Pain management to me is not what u need after surgery you need that pain to be as tame as possible. I hope it all works out.
