Increase in breast size after hysterectomy?

I had an LAVH on July 22 of this year. I have lost a bit of weight since the surgery and feel better than I have in a LONG time. I kept my ovaries and am not on any type of hormone replacement or medication whatsoever.

I am bursting out of my bras. I am already a C cup and think I am going to have to buy some new bras soon...heading towards a D I think. I am only 5'1 and do NOT want a larger chest. They are also sore, like they are during pregnancy. Strange.

Has this happened to any of you? What on Earth would be the explanation for this? I've done some searches online and have not come up with anything.

Re: Increase in breast size after hysterectomy?

I had a LAVH RSO 3 and 1/2 weeks ago and have definitely had enlarged and tender breasts since about the 2nd week. I attribute it to hormone fluctuation or PMS or? I wouldnt mind if the enlargement was permanent, the tenderness isnt quite as bad now.

Only time will tell!

Have had some sore breasts and had some changes in my hormones patch. Interesting thought that the breasts maybe got bigger with the hormone stuff.

Re: Increase in breast size after hysterectomy?

i was a C cup before the surgery. for the first couple of months after, my breasts were sore, and they were growing.

they seem to have settled down now, at 4 months post-op, into a D cup.

i have no idea what causes it, maybe the hormones.

Re: Increase in breast size after hysterectomy?

Mine definitely feel swollen and tender like during pg. I did have BSO and am on a the vivelle patch though and thought it might have something to do with that, but maybe it is something to do with the actual surgery.

Re: Increase in breast size after hysterectomy?

I do think that my bust has increased since my surgery in June. I have kept my ovaries as well and the first couple of weeks I had lots of twinges in them but that subsided. I think I have gone from a DD to an E, but definitely bigger.
