I am 49 and noticed first one in late 30's. It was removed during RNY when I was 40. Now I have atleast 100 if not more. Since RNY 9 yrs ago, I have gained back 60 lbs of the 100 lbs I lost. These lumps are very depressing and make me feel "what's the use of losing weight...the lumps will just be more visible".
Is this true? Are lumps more visible if you lose weight? I would guess if they are, it would be easier to have surgery to remove them...right? If anyone has the answer, please let me know. Right now I have no motivation to lose weight because I feel my lumps are "hidden" by the extra padding. But if I knew the lumps would shrink if I lost the extra weight....that would be extra motivation.
