weight pre-op vs. post-op

I weighed 8 more lbs the day after surgery but now at almost 5 weeks post op I weigh about 4 lbs less.than pre op weight.

I'm actually worried that I've loss a bit of muscle mass from being so inactive because I feel huge! Tomorrow I'm going to get serious about at least walking more.

weight pre-op vs. post-op

I lost 20 lbs before surgery. Have yet to get on the scale after. I was kinda tired of the "wasting away"/ "disappearing" comments. Not that I could not spare the weight. I could not control it. I was maybe 30 lbs over weight in Oct., but so swollen I looked bad! When your bowels are are wrapped in endo I guess eating sucks.

weight pre-op vs. post-op

Since my bloated belly weight dissipated, I've stayed at about 7 or 8 pounds lighter post-op than pre-op. (105 to 97, but don't worry: I'm 4'10")...

I'm going to try to find out how much my fibroids weighed...I see my Dr. this week. I've read they're not heavy, but I'm convinced mine were.

Serious exercise begins .... soon.

I'm the same weight too.. but feel so swollen... i swear I feel like I look 3 months pregnant!! I had a bit of a tummy before, but it seems worse now. I thought i'd have a flat belly after getting rid of all the fibroids and stuff..... darn it!! :-) I can't EVEN begin thinking about putting my jeans on yet. Still in comfy yoga pants. Probably will be for awhile.

Weight Loss

I weighed 120 at the time of my TAH at the end of sept now I am down 103. I am having complications so I guess that is why I am losing weight.

i was down 6 lbs. after surgery, then last week was up a pound... hope that doesnt continue.
siri, I cant wait to see dr. and find out the weight and size of mine either.
I know in measurements i lost an inch around my waist, my fibroid was sitting right at belly button. And its amazing even with swelly belly, i lost a half inch around hip area.

go figure since i still look very swelly.

weight pre-op vs. post-op

The day I got after my surgery, my weight was up 10 lbs. The dr. said that was sometime the case with the fluids I had while in the hospital and the gases they use to do the LAVH.

I am hoping that once I am able to get back exercising that my weight will return to normal.

weight pre-op vs. post-op

I've lost 14lbs since the day before my surgery and i want to workout so bad. i can't wait. i have not drank a pop in 4 weeks, no fast food or fried food. i am so proud of myself. I'm scared if I can't start working out soon I might lose this drive. hey it wouldn't be the 1st thing I've lost through this ordeal.
