    One of my friends who had gastric bypass had the "weird smell" issues. Her Dr. told her it was her body detoxing; sweating out the fat and such. Drink more water!

    I just checked and I think I smell just great! Maybe you smell fine but your sense of smell is off! Ask a friend.



    I lost 25 pounds on my (2 month) pre-surgical diet and my weight the date of surgery was 290.

    Could it be possible that you are releasing ketones? (Fat dying???) Ask someone else if you smell like nail polish remover. You might need a blood test.

    I read somewhere on here that you could have the weird smells from your body from the anesthesia and should return to normal within 2-32--3 weeks.
