Fri, Jan 25 6:10pm · Always cold after sleeve gastrectomy in Digestive Health

Hi all!
I have experienced this as well. Even during the summer months I'm cold. I always bring a jacket with me where ever I go. Maybe from all the weight loss? My MD doesn't seem concerned with this and said it was normal. My core temperature is actually always at about 99.5 at least for the last few months. Not sure if it is due to something else pathological.

Hi @kimh. Yes I had a CT done when I was in er. Radiologists diagnosed me with MP. Then a re read the next day never mentioned it. I had a 3rd radiologist look and he said he would not have called the mp out on the report. Frustrating! No there has been no mention of biopsy or anything. Just going with the flow. Meanwhile I have pain all the time. I have had ibs for 20 years. This is not a new thing to me and I know what that feels like. This is entirely different. I started with right upper quadrant pain and I still have that. Now for the last 2 days I have had left lower quadrant pain to the point it woke me up several times last night. I'm just frustrated and at a loss. I appreciate your response. I may send my ct to mayo to see if I really have this or not. Lots of back story here too. I grew up in an area where Monsanto had dumped radioactive waste near a creek where I played as a child. Now there are cluster cancers being discovered. Google cold water creek if interested. It's a bit frightening.

Has anyone been put on Nortriptyline for pain? My GI put me on it and it was not worth the side effects for me. I'm really feeling like he thinks I have IBS. I have had I s for years and that's not what I am feeling. The pain Is almost constant but tolerable to a point. I have. A follow up appointment this week. I'm just not feeling g like he is listening to me and that he already had his mind made up about my diagnosis when he walked in the door. He said I didnt have MP because I dont have the typical body habits of those who do have MP. Meaning I'm too thin to have it. We will see what happens but I'm not very optimistic about my treatment or lack thereof.

Thanks Steve. I'm in the medical field, formerly an MRI tech and I never heard of mp, but have done plenty of mesentary scans. Im sure that is what the doc is looking for, stones etc…. I just hate the vagueness when some docs talk to you,but usually that seems to come when they don't quite know what is going on rather than saying they don't really know.

@paulalee EUS is an endoscopic ultrasound. I'm sorry I should have explained that in my post.

Can anyone tell me if having an EUS with possible ERCP is a standard test for MP/SM? I went to a GI doc for the first time on Tuesday and he wants to perform this test. Can anyone tell me if they have had this type of study for the diagnosis?

HI. I have had the sleeve gastrectomy too (November 2017) and have been wondering if this is what started it and if it is linked with SM/MP. I was just diagnosed in July with Mesenteric Panniculitis after going to ER with RUQ pain. I had my gallbladder taken out in March 2018 so I know it was not that. More worried about cardiac problems and found out I have this. I'm going to see a specialist at one of our academic hospitals in my area. If you find out anything please let em know, If I find out anything I will post and let you know.
