Weight Gain for afterwards?

I am having a LAVH on 1/19/06 and have hormone issues to begin with. I am keeping only one ovary and was wondering with just keeping one will I have weight gain afterwards from everything and just "hanging" out? I have put on 15 lbs. through all of this and want to be myself again? As the date nears, I am freaking out more and more even though I am in a way looking forward to this b/c I won't have all of this junk to deal with......

Best wishes for your surgery. I am scheduled for LAVH on the 26th. I have also recently gained a few pounds...stress, holidays, hormones, fibroids, ? Like you I despise it. Yuck. always said I could not be a happy, overweight person. I work really hard to stay in shape but recently have not been very motivated. I know we will need to be careful of what we eat afterwards with our inactivity. See you on the other side. K

Not all women gain weight after surgery. Some do because of poor diet and lack of activity. Others do as a result of their HRT. Every sister is different and we react differently to this process. I gained a few pounds post op, but I chose to treat post op as a new beginning and a new me. Exercise and a good diet help keep the weight off and I feel healthier than I have in years. Good Luck to you! s

Hi, I had a tah/bso over 3 years ago and have been on hrt since then. I actually lost a few pounds right after my hyst. I am pretty active and have stayed about the same weight since then. It does seem to vary with each individual and their personal physical shape, lifestyle and eating habits.

Best wishes.

I am nervous about weight gain too!!! But I am hoping that after I recover, I will feel better and will be more likely to get back in to my workout regimine!!!! I need to loose about 45 pounds as it is, and hope I don't gain any more!!!!!!! Best wishes to you and will see you on the other side!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully we will both be saying we are loosing, not gaining!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Ladies!
I had LAVH a month ago today. I have lost 5 lbs. I have watched what I eat though due to the no serious exercise thing.
I gained weight over the past year due to not exercising because of the pain I was in. I am now looking forward to being able to exercise again (when allowed) without pain!
All the Best,

My fear too..... I am also scheduled for the 19th - TAH. I heard people lose weight just after the hyst - but tend to gain it back for the reasons mentioned in the other posts. I am going to try to stock up on healthy munchies - cause that's a weakness for me - especially if I am hanging around the house by myself!

My other fear is losing abdominal strength and messing up my back even further.

We January sisters should meka a pact to help eachother. I am also sure this site has some good ideas for weight control after surgery. Right now I am pretty focused on just making it the th 19th with ANY amount of sanity!

Good luck!

Here Here. I Am Scheduled For Sah On Jan 16. I Do Not Have A Ritualistic Workout Regimen, But I Am Also Not In Bad Shape. What I Am Worried About (from What I've Been Reading On This Site) Is The Scar Tissue They Say Forms At Your Incision Site From Working Out After The Surgery. I Am Afraid That If I Don't Do Some Form Of Excercise Other Than Walking, That I Will Overeat Out Of Boredom And End Up Putting On Pounds That I Cannot Afford. If Anyone Out There Can Dispel What I've Been Reading Please Post.
Worknwomn3 Good Luck To You. I Hope All Goes Well.

My hysterectomy is sched. for Jan 23. I'd love to make a pact with all the January princesses who worry about weight gain. That is certainly a worry of mine since I already need to lose about 40-50 lbs. Let's reach out to everyone and maybe we can all stay on track!
