Leg Cramps Gastric Bypass
I had gastric bypass almost 8 years ago over the past couple years ago I have had horrible leg cramps on the inside of my thighs they are horribly painful and also seem to happen when I have a lot of swelling in my legs relief?
Get evaluated: As this may be very treatable. See your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Bowing of your legs is due, most likely, to arthritis, not to the gastric surgery. Increased weight can cause increased joint wear and changes in your mechanical axis. The weight reduction likely is currently reducing your symptoms, but arthritis and mechanical axis malalignment is common in the general population in your age group.See 1 more doctor answer
I am trying to avoid gastric bypass and started working out. But my body is so sore, mainly my legs and back. What should I do or take?
Start Low / Go Slow: Take Ibuprofen or Naproxen with cool compresses. Hire a trainer if possible to help guide you to exercising properly so you don't overdo it and injure yourself; then you can increase your intensity as tolerated. Swim or do water aerobics in between for less intense exercise. Remember to include a healthy diet with meal planning and portion control (try food diary app), and get adequate sleep.

Not sure why doctors think my mom would qualify for gastric bypass surgery or the band? Yes she's 350 lbs but she has copd, chf, diabetic with fluids around lungs and her legs swell up a lot due to the fluid. How could she qualify?
Good case: Needs some tuning, but a great candidate, since most of her problems will resolve with sleeve or bypass. Less benefit with band. She would be one of our typical patients.See 5 more doctor answers

Gastric bypass pain: Epigastric and left sided pain can be a marginal ulcer, reflux esophagitis, a gastro-gastric fistula (which can cause the ulcer too), an ulcer in your gastric remnant, and an internal hernia. You should see your surgeon, get started on a proton pump inhibitor to see if it helps. Other tests to get would be an endoscopy to look at your pouch, and if that us neg, a ct scan to r/o internal hernia.See 1 more doctor answer

He may need: To consider a muscle relaxor, like cyclobenzaprine, at night. I would have him talk to his doctor. Good luck.
Review meds, exercis: It depends on what is causing them. Lots of reasons exist for leg cramps, including medications, electrolyte problems, vascular problems, etc. If it is from a cholesterol drug called statins, then sometimes stopping or changing the medicine can help. Other times, over the counter medicines help, like naproxyn or ibuprofen. Coq-10 is a supplement that can help. Exercise may help too!See 3 more doctor answers
Many: Not limited to men! Usually fatigue. Could be due to medications taken. Diuretics exacerbate this by causiing low potassium, magnesium and perhaps low calcium. Poor hydration contributes to this. If one has poor circulation to the lower extremities (pvd), leg crams can occur. Sometimes we just don't know why they cramp. You may be helped by some meds. See your pcp and discuss.See 2 more doctor answers
Cramps are common: A muscle cramp is a involuntary contraction of a musle, especailly common of the legs and feet. Most commonly caused by hyperexcitability of the nerves that stimulate the muscles. Can also be the result of an injury and vigorous activity. Dehydration and electrolyte, element imbalances can also be causative factors. Simple stretching lengthens the muscle and stops the contraction.See 2 more doctor answers
