post-op weight loss

Has anyone lost any weight post-op? I had a TAH on 4/3/08 and at my 2wk check-up I lost 7lbs and had to go back a week later to have my incision checked after I scratched it open and lost another 4lbs. The Dr. didn't seem concerned but I am.

I have lost a total of 9lbs so far. I'm not even trying to lose any weight! I'm having some really bad constipation problems and I have been trying to eat a high fiber diet and at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily.

Gained about seven, haven't been able to lose them, so between that and the swollen belly, I can barely fit into any of my clothes at the moment....not a good thing, since I am back to work.....

I lost 12 pounds after my surgery, 8 of those from my surgery, and 4, I suppose from fluids. Today, I was up 2 though, so I need to start watching what I'm eating! Of course, my uterus was at 22 weeks, so I expected to lose some. And, I have a lot I can lose!
I would say, jellyroll, as long as you aren't eating more than you usually do, and still losing, you're probably doing fine!

Thank you ladies. I started to think something was wrong with me, cause I went into this with my eyes closed because I was scared to death and didn't get alot of info from my Dr. about what to expect.

I would be concern. I lost alot of weight after surgery. Do you have an appetite? Do you still feel icky? I am recovering beginning my 2 week, and I still have no appetite and have weird BM.

I have lost 40 lbs in 15+ weeks. I wasn't trying to - and can afford to drop 40 more

Everyone is different, but I am thrilled with my loss.

Blessings on you ....
