in 2008 i had a gastric by pass due to the fact i had sleep apnea, and when i stop breathing and when my body would shock it's self back to breathing it would cause depressed hormones in my body which caused me to gain weight and the weight made the sleep apnea worse and the and the sleep apnea worse i reached a level of 326 pounds, so after 6 months of studying i decided to have a gastic by pass which has been succesful. in 2009 nine i had a 4 centmeter kidney stone and spent 16 hrs in surgery and lost a lot of blood. then i had a bladder problem and at the time of surgery they found out my right ovary was full of cyst and when going in to fix the bladder if they thought it should come out they would remove the ovary! (in the early 2000 i had a partial hysterectamy, and ovaries where left in) anyway the ovary at surgery day looked bad, so out it came. well i never got my strenght back! then my vitamin levels dropped and i became very sick, no vitamins and no vitamin d. so as i got worse i was sent to an endo dr. and was told i was in menapause and my left ovary was not working. and i was put on a low dose of estrogene and did great! then i was told i had chronic fatique syndrome and fibromalsia. went to rhematologist put me on meds, after 2 months i started to gain weight and got off of meds. know i am told my piturtary gland is not pruducing enough acth and cortisol. as put on dexamethasone 0.5 mg. know i am gainig weight left and right. with the gkand not working right will this cause me to gain weight? at one time my thyroids where not working and i dropped down to a great weight! now it's a night mare! can anyone help?
