Is he kidding!!!

Hi ladies
Ok I'm 6 weeks post op tomorrow doing very well except for my swelly belly or so I thought....after coming out of hospital none of my clothes fit me it's like my waist has got 3 times bigger, went to my doctor today & asked about it to be told no it's not swollen you've put on weight!!! Needless to say I wasn't impressed & I asked how could I put on that much in a week he said its hormonal changes due to my op even though I've still got both ovaries has anyone else been told the same or have the same issue with weight?

Did your doctor actually bother to put you on a scale and weigh you before he made this pronouncement? If he did and your current weight is greater than your pre-op weight, then yes, you've gained weight.

If he didn't, then he's not only lazy, he's also misinformed about the how hormonal changes work or he was just flat out lying to you.

Does it come an go? Get bigger later in the day than it is swelly belly. One lady one time talked about a poke test where if you poked it and it bounced back it was fat but if you poked it and it depressed and took awhile to spring back it was swelling. I thought that was an interesting assessment.

since you had a rude Dr.
