My surgery was several years ago – 1989 and at that time I only lost about 75 lbs. from weighting 211 lbs. I exercised by walking when I was able because I worked shift work and eating small meals.
Over the past two years my weight has reached a very high level of about 240 lbs. and I have been experiencing odd fluctuations starting in the area just below the breast which causes my heart to race, pulse to race and a very huge feeling of pressure going to my head. I have had tests for my thyroid which came back okay.
I am just wondering what is causing this because it is very scary. When this has occurred before I have checked my blood sugars on my husbands machine, but I am always fine in that area.
