All right, I’m just going to come right out and say it. I’ve gained 30 pounds since my surgery. Yes, you read that right – 30 POUNDS!!! I am not happy about this. I haven’t changed my eating habits and I’ve never been one to exercise. I just can’t figure it out. Could it be the estradiol? I started taking it about 2 months post-op and I hadn’t gained any weight up to that point. I’m finally getting my butt in gear and starting to exercise, but I’m so afraid that it won’t work since this weight gain seems to be a separate thing. I don’t see my doctor again until January and I can’t even imagine how much I’ll weigh by then if something doesn’t change. Has this happened to anyone else? How did you deal with it? I can’t stop taking the estradiol. Without it I was having horrendous hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, insomnia, forgetfulness, etc. I can’t live like that, and DH wouldn’t survive it either. HELP, please!

I'm sorry to hear about the weight gain. That must be so frustrating! It might be the medicine. Can you call the doctor and ask, or google the medicine and see if weight gain is a side effect. The pharmacisit might be able to answer you question as well.

Good Luck! Lots of
