After surgery I find that I feel cold or chilled even on a warm day. I live in south Florida where it is relatively warm in the winter. I find the need to wear a sweater or light jacket in the evenings when the air temp is in the 70's. Has anyone else had this concern. Proir to surgery this issue did not exist.

I've noticed the same thing. I call it increased sensitivity to cold. Of course, since my surgery was in December, it really was colder, so I wasn't sure at first. But I kept noticing that I had to dress warmer than everyone else around, even today, when it's in the 70's. Haven't heard anyone else mention this, but it seems like a plausible outcome from surgery. I expect it will go away with time. Stamina is also still going up and down.
