Weight.. gain or loss?

I hear a lot about weight gain after a hyst. What about weightloss? I'm big enough now and I'm hoping to go the other way. I feel that maybe this (mass on my ovary) is why I'm having trouble losing weight. I'm hoping to focus on losing weight and getting healthy after all this mess is over.

Add bowel prep plus lack of appetite from pain, etc. and you probably get some initial weight loss. Factor in the inactivity over several weeks, and it probably evens out. I think this is a good opportunity to evaluate total lifestyle habits and start a-new.

Weight.. gain or loss?

Hi, right after my tah/bso I lost a few pounds. Mainly because of a lack of appetite and not being able to eat much at first either. Now, at almost 4 years post op , I'm about the same as before my hyst. I'm well within my "desirable" weight range. I do stay pretty busy and get lots of exercise.

Best wishes.
