You : You generally want your weight to be stable over a fair amount of time. I prefer at least 1 to 1.5 years after bypass before considering skin reduction surgery. Often times after losing a large amount of weight and recovery from the bypass, patients become more active and lose further weight and body fat that isn't seen initially. There can also be variations of your own schedule [e.g., season, work load, etc] that you won't see until you can see that you have plateaued for remain at that level. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Why do I have severe, stabbing upper abdominal pain after sex? It lasts 20-30 minutes with occasional radiation to the edge of left quadrants.

Why do I have severe, stabbing upper abdominal pain after sex? It lasts 20-30 minutes with occasional radiation to the edge of left quadrants.

Most likely PID: Painful intercourse, also called dyspareunia, is often related to pelvic inflammatory disease. That said you have lost weight. Was that unintended? There are many possibilities that come to mind and in this instance I suggest a visit to both your primary MD (family or internal medicine) ANDa visit to GYN. They will need to work together to diagnose and treat this problem, ASAP. Delay is unwise. ...Read more

I have had left upper abdominal pain for two days and my tonsils are swollen and I have a fever?

Mono?: When I hear this combination of symptoms I always think of mono. This viral infection can cause the spleen to become irritated leading to pain in the left upper abdomen. Mono can also cause red tonsils - sometimes even with pus on them. Please see an MD asap to be properly diagnosed.
