weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I really need to lose weight (really, really, really on that), something I was just reading about hysterectomies said there is an average 25lb weight gain in the first year after surgery (no idea where they get that from); and other things I've read talk about difficulty in losing existing weight; that it makes losing much harder etc. For those who have had their surgery, is this your experience? Thanks

that's great on the weightloss and thanks, it helps so much knowing that it doesn't mean having to gain/not lose as some suggest

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

zadie,

Concerns of weight gain were also on my list pre-op. I really needed to lose weight too. After my hyster and getting my HRT right I was able to lose 50 pounds.
I blame part of my pre-op weight gain on PMS and hormone issues. Finally getting those things taken care of I was able to control my appetite and felt good enough to really get into working out.

I don't believe a hyster will cause weight gain or weight loss. There is more to it than a surgery.

Good luck next week!

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I am almost 6 months out and I have actually lost almost 30 pounds!! I think it has a lot to do with hormones. I would eat like crazy during my cycle...which seemed to never end, and I had no energy at all, so I sat around and did nothing a lot, even when I wasn't having my period. Now, I have energy, I don't crave chocolate...EVER, and I have been dropping the pounds very easily....of course I have never gotten my appetite back after surgery, so that could also have something to do with it. Everyone is different. I hope you are able to lose the weight you want to lose. to you!

What do you think caused you to lose your appetite? I want whatever that was! My surgery is a week from Friday - 11/11/11 - and I have struggled with weight issues all my life. Just recently lost 50 pounds (in the last year) but have been slowly edging back up- so, I have got to get it under control - and was also worried about the surgical menopause causing weight gain.

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

Arabrider and Zadie,

Maybe we should start a weight loss club - if there isn't one already.
Do we get to count our uterus? Mine's going to be a little hefty with the mass of fibroids I'm incubating.
