I am all of this weight loss wall maybe we can get help from each other and learn new things to try and do.. best of luck to you ladies.
I think you should concentrate on feeling better, don't worry about your weight for now as from what I have read so much is swelling and you won't know until you are up and about. I don't know why we women feel we have to be up, super woman and super slim. We come in all shapes and sizes and that is ok. The very best of luck to you while you recover

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I too need to lose about 20-30 lbs, but my surgery is tentatively scheduled for 12/9. On one hand I feel like I shouldn't start any weight loss efforts before having surgery since there will be weeks after my surgery before I can work out again. But I also feel like any effort is better than nothing. I am hoping my appetite disappears for a bit after my surgery. I love to eat!!

I'll try to find the weight loss thread on here - I seem to have some trouble finding threads.

Good luck to all the ladies!

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I know other people who where actively working out before surgery and they did a lot better with keeping active and recovering then those who where not.

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

Hello Ladies. I am post op 6 weeks. I have lost 10 pounds since surgery on 10/3/11, I did this without trying. I am finally feeling that it is time to start exercising again. I have never been one to keep up a regular routine.
To you ladies that are days out of surgery....quit thinking about the weight issues. Make sure you focus on your recovery; most of us aren't back to ourselves for at LEAST four weeks. Even at 6 weeks post op, I am still very tired at the end of the day and can really tell when I have over done it the day or days before.

You will know when you are ready!

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I go in at 6:15...I've have several elective surgeries, but I am terrified! Thank you to all you wonderful sisters for your encouraging stories! I've packed on 20 pounds in the last 2 months. After reading I now understand what is causing my gain! Pray tomorrow will be a new day and a new skinny me!

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I deliberately lost 11kg earlier this year over a period of 5 months (24lbs).. and had lost another 1.5kg/3lbs before going in for my hyst 9 days ago. Since then, my weight's remained stable.. my diet hasn't changed (though I had little appetite the first 3 days), my swelly belly is just about gone .. and I'm hungry a lot more than I used to be!! So I snack all day - but on healthy stuff. I'd like to lose another 6.5kg/14lb - but I'm in no rush. It will happen when it happens.

Re: weight gain or loss following hysterectomy

I am almost 7 months post op and I lost 20 lbs, I have put some back on but I do not believe it is hysterectomy related. I have not been very good lately.
