I hear ya. I gained about 10# after surgery, but am now able to exersice more and am eating better, so I think I'm on the way back down.

Good luck!

I've certainly gained since my TAH in May 05 and can't seem to get the weight off. I'm taking Bio estrogen in cream form, but am suffering from hot flashes too.

I am two weeks out and I lost 8 lbs. Haven't had as much of an appetite since I had my TAH/BSO a little over two weeks ago.

I lost weight too initially post op but it seems to be creeping up the last two years since the surgery. That and the hot flashes are my biggest complaints. The bi estogen I'm using doesn't seem to be helping much - what else can I do?

Weight loss/gain?

I've lost 8 pounds since my surgery and today my massage therapist and my hair dresser commented on how good I looked with the weight loss! Motivation has hit in or maybe the surgery caused me to grow up, but I've gotten very good at dodging temptation!

weight loss

I had lost 13 lbs at 3 weeks post op. I have now lost a total of 21 lbs. Don't weigh soon as you come home because you will certainly have gained from the swelly belly!

Weight loss/gain?

I have lost 34 pounds unexplainably so I don't need to lose any more here!! I had been around 120-125 most my life since high school. Went to work for a bank and sat on my butt for 10 hours a day (from being on my feet 8-10) and gained 27 pounds. My high was around 152 and now I'm 116. I know it's not THAT far past my typical but other then being back in retail and being on my feet, there's no reason I should be losing all the sudden. So.. I could stand to gain a few pounds.. sick of being told I look anorexic (which I am far from!!) I'm still eating crappy food but who knows. Don't want a huge change either way right now.

That didn't help much did it?? I'm sorry.. no answers but here's a hug!

Weight loss/gain?

I used to weigh in at around 115 pounds. Then I got sick around 9 years agao and was put on heavy steroids, which I am still taking to this day. Needless to say, I gained a lot of weight, and weight now around 175 pounds. My belly is as big as if I was about to go into labour, and all these years I had been told it was the steroids and to get used to it. Then a month ago I found out that was all bull, and that I have a cyst the size of Chicago. So, I hope to lose a whole bunch of weight once I come out of the castle. I will do whatever is necessary to try to keep my weight down from now on.
