weight gain/loss?

After your hysterectomies, have any of you notice any weight gains or losses? Also, how soon afterward can you begin exercising?

weight gain/loss?

Hi!! I have noticed that after my tahbso -now 5 1/2 weeks post op - that I have gained weight. Before my operation I had lost 6 lbs but now have it all back!!

I was never a 'water' person but I realize that I must start drinking more. :drink

I find it very hard not being able to exercise as we all still eat!! I tried to walk more but ended up back at square one from pain of doing too much. I could not walk again for 3 more days because of the pain!!

Tomorrow I go for my check-up and hope to get the ok to do a bit more and start back to work!!

I know that I will get the weight off - I must learn to be patient and just take more care in what I eat!!

Good Luck

Weight Gain/loss

I had weight loss. When my MD recommended a hysterectomy for 5 large fibroids, I was 5'7" and 150 lbs. (The same amount I was when I delivered my first baby!) I didn't want him to cut through all that fat. I dieted and lost 11 lbs. I checked into the castle at 139. Now, 19 days post op I am at 130 and holding.

Drinking all the water the nurses recommended is what made the biggest difference for me. I hope going forward I will continue this good habit.

I am NOT trying to lose any more weight, but I am tickled with where I'm at.

weight gain/loss?

My weight has stayed exactly the same. I am drinking water by the case -- and am very frustrated. My doctor said that it is going to take awhile for me to lose weight because of all the hormones I was on prior to surgery (provera shots and pills). He claims these hormones stay in your system for quite awhile and that's the battle I'm fighting. I gained SO much weight when I went on the shots and pills. So I am definitely frustrated. Any suggestions from anyone???
