Retaining water after TAH?

i had a tah 10/26 (still have my tubes and ovaries) and i am in my 8th week of recovery. everything is going well. i went to the dr. today and i have gained 6 lbs since my postop visit in 12/01. i haven't changed my eating habits. is it possible that my body will still act like i am about to have my period and retain water?

Retaining water after TAH?

That is a possiblity but you need to think that we haven't been as mobile either. Are you taking any medications? This could be causing it also. I gained 4 pounds in 4 weeks and I figured it was due to not being as active as I used to be. I heard certain medications or HRT's can make you gain weight. I take effexor and it caused me to gain weight. You could be bloated too. You can still have PMS symptons if you have your ovaries. Dont worry, things will get back to normal.
